Fabulous house

  • 5 of 5

Lovely village (pubs, tea shops and pretty church green) and fabulous house!! There was plenty of room for our group of 11. The house was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. Large comfy beds, a well equipped kitchen, lots of seating in both the living and dining room and a very pretty garden. Our group of friends rent a house at the same time every year and this is one of the most comfortable, clean and spacious properties that we have stayed in, The owner Michael was easy to deal with.....prompt in responding to our enquiries, quick to return our security deposit and helpful with all of our questions. We loved the cake, chocolates and magazines that were left for us and we would not hesitate to return or to recommend the house to others. Come and stay here.....you won't be disappointed.
