Absolutely beautiful, everything had been thought of by the owners and there was even some treats left for our arrival. The log burner was great and the option to buy extra dry logs was perfect.

Great location and a lovely house, feels much bigger than it is. Garden does not have evening sunlight (due to trees on a neighbouring property) but fantastic place. Very comfortable, well equipped and clean.
