  • "Lovely house, good location with nice views."

    Everything you could need. Hot tub was great and was in a private, secluded area. Perhaps provide more in the way of cleaning products in the kitchen but otherwise perfect.

  • "The cottage itself was excellent, modern, well appointed and clean."

    The only slight negative was the hot tub as the water had an unpleasant aroma as if it required to be cleaned.

  • "Esma House was a lovely bungalow, would guess a new build as during the week people were working on the landscaping in the garden."

    Sufficient kitchen equipment but lots of small items were missing such as measuring jug, scales, fruit bowl to name just a few. Small items in themselves but fairly essential when cooking for a family. A few issues with shower leaking in en-suite bathroom and over head shower in main bathroom not working but we did leave a message at the house. Bungalow was very clean and bed and bed linen excellent. Would happily recommend and stay here again but these small but essential items need addressing.

  • "The house was beautiful and clean."

    We couldn’t fault a thing. The hot tub was lovely with plenty of privacy and you can blue tooth your phone to play music too. Pity it’s booked up until November but can understand why. We would highly recommend this house and the addition of a welcome bottle of wine and chocs was a lovely touch. Thank you so much for a lovely stay.
