We just loved this property. Comfortable, welcoming and accessible for husband. Beautiful well maintained gardens and although the back garden not accessible for wheelchairs the view from the patio window was amazing. The front garden was accessible and secluded to sit out in ( weather permitting). Plenty of attractions to visit nearby- remember toRead more book due to Covid restrictions. Would book the property again anytime. Hide
