A fabulous place to stay! myself and my brother’s family stayed here as we were going to a local wedding - Valerie was so welcoming and helpful, even lending me a shawl for if it got cold in the evening. The house was spacious and so comfortable and I highly recommend this accommodation and will be telling my friends about it. My husband was also thrilled to have wifi available as this helped him in his job. A really great, comfortable stay and would even think of having a weekend break in the area with our daughter just so I can go back to this house!
