  • "Perfect place for us, 3 couples with 2 dogs."

    Accommodation was well presented, clean and very comfortable. Unfortunately the recycling facilities were lacking and it grated to throw away plastic bottles, tins and cardboard. The toaster didn't work and the oven door came off, these things which can easily be rectified. Would definitely go back again.

  • "We only had one desert bowl and spoon so notified the staff on site."

    They then supplied us later with some more but when we checked them before using them there was some mould on them so had to put them through the dishwasher before use. However the site was nice and clean.
