  • "Great property, comfortable, clean and well equipped."

    The only thing our group commented was that the lounge could do with a few lamps to make it cosier as the overhead lighting is bright. Great comfy sofas. Loved the air hockey and hot tub. Thanks

  • "This is a lovely, spacious property."

    It was the cleanest I have stayed in and very well maintained and equipped. The photos don't really do it justice. There is so much space. The hot tub is a lovely addition. A lovely village with friendly neighbours.
