Quiet Country Idyll

  • 4 of 5

Well presented and spacious property in very rural location. Access via external staircase so a little difficult for my mother but once in everything on one level. Not a big problem. Would benefit from somewhere to sit outside Ideal location for exploring the area.Stayed here whilst visiting family.

A comfortable hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week's stay at this lovely apartment.Everything was as described, well appointed and in excellent order. We found the bed really comfy and the decor pleasing. The owners are a really nice couple and nothing was too much trouble. If you want a place to stay in the countryside then look no further. We would be more than happy to return.
