    “Then property was lovely.”

    It was spotlessly clean, everything looked new and the garden and furniture in the shed were very well looked after. We felt completely safe. Highly recommend.

The property

Nestled in the picturesque village of Portskewett is this detached cottage, Alvia, recently renovated in a contemporary style.

Alvia is a charming setting for an escape away with friends, sleeping up to four people in two good-sized bedrooms.

Upon arrival, be welcomed by a lengthy driveway, where you can park right outside the property and make your way inside.

Venture into the property and find a spacious hallway, where you can kick off your boots and take yourself to the leather sofa to unwind with a well deserved rest in front of the TV after a fun day of excursions in Portskewett and the surrounding areas.

Explore the rest of the floor and find the white-washed kitchen where you can cook up a storm for the group, with access to all the essential appliances, and enjoy your meals in the neighbouring the dining room, planning your holiday itinerary as you sit together and appreciate a home-cooked meal.

Drift off to a nights refreshing embrace in either of the two bedrooms, choosing between the delightful king-size bedroom or the double, slipping under the covers for a blissful nights sleep.

To the rear of the home there is an airy conservatory with rattan furniture, the perfect setting for your morning coffee, or if you're lucky enough to experience the warmer weather, step outside to the lawned garden and breathe in the fresh summer air, where you will discover outdoor furniture for a spot of alfresco dining.
