  • "Lovely big house for a large group of people."

    We were a mixed group of runners who came up to do some walking in the area. The kitchen was equipped with everything you would need to cater for a large group. The furnishings were lovely. The bedrooms were all beautiful and there seemed to be an abundance of bathrooms in the property so there was never a queue. It’s an easy walk into the town centre and to the shoreline. Would definitely recommend.

    So glad you enjoyed your stay! Your group sounds fantastic, and it's wonderful to hear that the house met your needs with its well-equipped kitchen, beautiful furnishings, and ample bathrooms. If there's anything specific that stood out or any suggestions you have for improvement, feel free to share. We look forward to welcoming you again if you decide to return to the area.

  • "Great size property."

    Few issues which to be fair were dealt with swiftly by management. The house does need some upkeeping - photos appear to be old and the house needs TLC. Dining room was a great size - kitchen is a bit on the small size for a group of 12.
