Top vakantie in zeer ruim appartement

  • 4 of 5

I.t.t. de info op de website bleken we niet op de 1e verdieping, maar op de begane grond een appartement te huren.

Er waren veel folders voor handen met informatie over bezienswaardigheden in de omgeving.

De eigenaren waren erg vriendelijk en zeer behulpzaam.

Ook konden we buiten aan de picknicktafel zitten te midden van de bloementuin.

Tip: Natuurwandeling bij St. Abb's Head.
