It is a lovely big house, the underfloor heating was wonderful in the kitchen specially when staying there in the winter. The garden didn't seem completely self contained which would have been a worry if we had brought the dog. Walking round the house keeps your steps up!

Some aspects of the property met our expectations, but others didn't. If charging a significant amount of money for rental, the basic decor, bedding, towels and curtains should reflect the price. Equally, a friendly welcome pack, decent bathroom essentials and a manual relating to the appliances would have enhanced the stay. Overall we felt that thRead moree house didn't quite live up to the photographs, nor the inflated price charged! We still had a great weekend though as the area is fantastic! Hide
