    The Farmhouse was absolutely wonderful exactly like the pictures and was beautifully clean. The interior and decor exceeded our expectations and the fantastic kitchen with a table to seat everyone was ideal. The owners were most helpfull prior to our holiday contacting us and accomodating our requests re cots etc. The little touches on our arrival were a delight a welcome card, cake, fruitbowl and flowers, it felt like a home from the minute we walked through the door. The directions to finding the property were excellent as were all the helpful tips i.e. how to get a food delivery from the local supermarket. The location close to the coast is excellent with so many lovely beaches to choose from. I would strongly recommend this property to anyone wanting to book for a large family gathering or party of friends.
