Fantastic Accomodation 5*

  • 5 of 5

This home was fantastic. It offers everything you need and more with luxurious fittings and furnishings. There is lots of space to relax and eat with spectacular views from the dining area and bedrooms. Every part of the house is finished to a very high standard. The hot tub is a great touch for relaxing after a busy day out.

We had a very warm welcome from David and he allowed the children to feed the pigs which everyone thought highly amusing. The pigs made us laugh each day! Nothing was too much trouble and David also offered lots of local knowledge and places of interest.

All in all this was a fabulous break with that luxurious touch we would highly recommend it!
