The house is just fabulous and the kitchen was so well equipped and easy to use it was a pleasure to cook in! Very clean and in a lovely quiet spot. Only thing I could say negative is we found the bed in the master bedroom to be a bit uncomfortable as it was quite a hard mattress but the people in the other bedrooms were perfectly happy with their beds. Also the pillows were feather pillows which are too soft so could have done with some more but this is all personal preference and wouldn’t stop us from booking again.

Thank you very much Graham Reviewed by GrahamMay 2021 "An absolutely fabulous house with 3 double bedrooms, immaculately decorated and very clean and comfortable." The hot tub was an added bonus after a day out walking. The views all around are stunning. Angela, the lady who looks after the property and its guests was great. Very professional and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The only thing I would improve, would be more pans and frying pans for cooking. There were only 3 of us but I had to buy another frying pan to be able to cook effectively for all 3 of us. If there were 6 people wishing to self cater and eat together, they would definitely need more pans.
