Wonderful experience! Clean, comfortable, spacious property with friendly and helpful owners. Everything we needed was provided. The house looked small but not so! Very comfortably accommodated a large family dinner on Sunday, with 18 in attendance. Slept 7 with no crowding. Lovely decorating. Can’t say enough good things! We will be back.
