This very spacious property was of a high standard and ideally suited for extended families. The owners were welcoming and keen to ensure the comfort of their visitors. Would highly recommend for a peaceful getaway, but also within easy reach of the North coast and visitors attractions.Mrs H Rolls - 2nd January 2018

Spotlessly clean, comfortable, well-equipped house in amazing surroundings (a woodland walk straight out of the back door) and a warm welcome from the owners. Great to find a property with enough beds and bathrooms - and mugs! - for the whole extended family. Mrs Christine Hall - 26th July 2017
