"A beautiful home in a fantastic setting."

This beautifully decorated bungalow was stunning. Each room has been carefully presented to give the Whow factor. Superbly comfortable with good quality furnishings and everything you could need to make your stay perfect.
Set in a beautiful location, with views from the garden extending over green fields sloping up from the trickling stream, at the bottom of the valley. An artists dream!
Within driving distance of many local places of interest.
