Beautiful property with stunning outdoor area

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing couple of weeks here & will definitely return!

Highlight is the fabulous outdoor dining & BBQ area, perfect for dinner under the stars.

Gorgeous heated pool (which has safety fencing to keep little ones out) & lush gardens front & back.

The property is absolutely stunning, with spacious & airy living areas, & beautiful views from the huge ensuite bedroom on the upper floor.
