    “Amazing location. Everything you ...”
    Amazing location. Everything you would need is on your doorstep and very friendly people. There was just one issue with the holiday home and that was the difficulty in closing the patio doors in the conservertory. Opening it was no problem but closing it was very awkward and took quite a few attempts to achieve. In the end we thought it better not to use it. Other than that it was home from home
