A spacious property over four floors, provided a really comfortable base for the week. It really was a home from home, absolutely everything provided, and a generous welcome basket to greet us. The games room proved popular and the beds are incredibly comfortable. The view from the patio and attic bedroom is spectacular.

Beautiful house, lovely decor and pieces of furniture. We really enjoyed our stay here. House is over four floors (may be tricky for anyone with mobility issues). Great views from the rear. If you have a dog/small children, the only enclosed part of the terrace is a very small section by back door (great spot for morning coffee though). Main terracRead moree is shared with the neighbour and has road acess via steps with no gate. Parking is roadside, unless car is very small and fits by/in garage. Hide

Beautifully decorated house which was the perfect setting for our week away. Our children loved all the spaces and rooms and we ended each day with a game of table football. The view out the back is stunning.
