"Fantastic large but cosy home with top quality finishes."

As a group of 8 30 something friends with 3 small children between us we were looking for somewhere to get together. We became aware of the property through an internet search. On arrival we were greeted by the friendly owner who couldnt have been more helpful and accomodating. The house itself was better than we could have hoped for, the photos really dont do it justice. The quality of the finshes was very impressive.
The lounge area was large enough to comfortably seat all 8 adults with room for the kids to play without any problems, but still felt warm, cosy and homely. It made for lovely sociable setting for us and was exactly what we were hoping for. The large concertina doors from the living room out onto the decking area were a real touch of class and the weather did allow us to make use of the substantial decking area which was great for the kids.
The kitchen is large roomy and again very well stocked. All the fittings have a good quality to them and there was stacks of storage for the rediculous amount of goodies we'd all taken for what was just a long weekend!
The beds are incredibly comfortable and the showers are incredible!
This property is right in the heart of the forest. We spent the days just exploring the forest trails and playing on the adventure playground which all ages enjoyed!
All in all every member of the party thoroughly enjoyed our weekend. Its a great place to escape from the stresses of everyday life and we would whole heartedly recommend this place to anyone.
