Homely, welcoming, thoughtfully equipped. We recommend the ponies for the children, the local market, wandering the back streets of the town and as much relaxing and outdoor time as possible, thank you!

Wonderful time in your beautiful house

We all had a wonderful time in your beautiful house. The children really loved the pool and walks into the town to buy breakfast! All the toys here were much appreciated. Thank you also to Heidi for looking after us so well.
