    “Myself and my partner were incredibly amazed to learn that we were the first guests at this property as the facilities, amenities and property in general itself was 10/10.”

    We have stayed at 15+ rental homes/cabins in the last 4/5 years and this definitely has been the best one to date. Paul, the host, was incredibly humble and welcoming which is always a plus. The home itself felt like it was made with great care, attention to detail and consideration as it has been made so very well. Every room in the property was refreshing, clean and spacious!

    We have stayed at 15+ rental homes/cabins in the last 4/5 years and this definitely has been the best one to date. Paul, the host, was incredibly humble and welcoming which is always a plus. The home itself felt like it was made with great care, attention to detail and consideration as it has been made so very well. Every room in the property was refreshing, clean and spacious! The open plan kitchen space is perfect for either a family stay or even if you are staying with some friends, simply because of the large space which allows everybody to relax and enjoy themselves in one room. The kitchen was well equipped with pans, utensils and cooking space. A large induction hob which make cooking very easy and quic. The fridge/freezer has more than enough space to hold plenty of food/drink for the full weekend for 6 adults. The bedrooms and bathrooms were perfect and each room has plenty of space. We made great use of the hot tub daily, both in the day and night. In the day, the garden gets a perfect view of the sunset and fields and at night the hot tub has LED lighting in with a nicely lit pergola. This property most definitely exceed my expectations and we will 100% be re-booking this place in the future as it was 10 out of 10. Thanks for such a great and long needed weekend break!
