A very spacious, well-equipped holiday home in a beautiful location. The owners are also very responsive. When we had a problem with the wi-fi, they responded within a few minutes. And when we complained about the mattress in one of the bedrooms, the owner turned up with a brand new Simba one a couple of hours later. Amazing!

With walks from the house, a nice caf and a brilliant butcher next door we enjoyed the location with its beautiful views in the valley in every respect.

Fantastic house. So much space for us all to move around and to relax together. We never felt ontop of each other. The bedrooms are also incredibly spacious. The pool table was a great bonus as we had 3 under 18s with us. And it being part of the house was perfect. The owners were very helpful when we had a problem with the heating.
