  • "The house was excellent,comfortable,well insulated and heated."

    The kitchen which is otherwise very well equipped lacked a sharp vegetable knife.However as the host lives right next door I'm sure that had we bothered to ask, one would have been supplied. The location which is slightly off the beaten track suited us perfectly and our host was very friendly and helpful with no fuss about anything.I would definitely recommend this property to other people.
