    The house is as amazing as it looks and it was perfect for a large group of friends to enjoy a weekend away. The views were stunning and the bedrooms were all extremely comfortable. We went for a walk/hike in the gorgeous surrounding area and there is a shop with all the essentials located just a 3 minute walk away. Plenty of room for parking but you will be blocking each other in! The systems are very easy to use and Fred is very thorough when he meets you. It may be useful to have a 'guide' within the property to say the Wi-Fi password and how to use the TVs etc but we figured it all out quite easily once we scouted the property! Will definitely look to stay here again or in one of Fred's other properties. An incredible weekend away! Thank you!!
