"Exceeding expectation"

The photos don't do the house justice. It is a mix of modern convenience and traditional charm in a fantastic setting away from the hustle and bustle on the city.

"Perfect Location"

The village of Falkland was wonderful. It is very quaint with a few pubs/restaurants/shops and beautiful walking trails. There are also three different parks which my young children loved.
The house had everything we needed! The kitchen was fully-equpped and even had sharp knives for chopping. I would definitely go back.
