The annex was clean and well equipped, kitchen a bit cluttered, the welcome foods etc were amazing. The property is very remote & walking dogs meant a trip in the car each time. The garden is not enclosed so this was another issue with the dogs. There were several take aways in a nearby village, however there are no delivery options to the propertyRead more, so again the car is needed. Even with the dogs crated you are not allowed to leave them there alone, so eating out was also not an option for us. Hide
