    “Amazing location.”

    Great for families and dogs. So many points of interest for outdoors people. And whilst a car is needed to get into town it wasn't a bind.

    Great for families and dogs. So many points of interest for outdoors people. And whilst a car is needed to get into town it wasn't a bind. The property is fantastic with plenty room and even though there was 12 of us, the 2 conservatories and living room meant it didn't feel you were living on top of each other.
