    It is well equipped - by someone who has thought about what is needed to make the stay relaxing, not just what is the bare minimum. The view to the treetops is beautiful and the wild meadow orchard was a joy to sit in to watch the bees and butterflies. The property is close to many lovely places and is well served by the shops in nearby Heathfield. Amanda was excellent at getting in touch and making it clear that she was around to sort out anything that needed attention thus ensuring we could relax and we did. I would return to this apartment (the neighbours were very nice too). The property has a real country feel to it and the access road has to be negotiated slowly and carefully.
