    “Great house for a group”

    Fabulous house - spacious, modern, excellently equipped, very homely. Comfortable beds and black out blinds upstairs in the 6 sleeper room.

    Fabulous house - spacious, modern, excellently equipped, very homely. Comfortable beds and black out blinds upstairs in the 6 sleeper room. We rented out the whole house for a hens. There was no rush to leave and we were left to our own devices. About 5 mins in a taxi from town. There are blackboards in the rooms with handy telephone numbers on them - like taxi's and doctors. Plenty of towels supplied. A great house for a big group of people, would definitely recommend it
