"Perfect cozy lazy hideaway with sauna and decking..."
The pictures don't do this place justice. It is a lovely location facing onto a golf course and literally next door to the Barn Works spa, pool and beauty centre. there is a sauna in the house which can be used anytime and is a lovely bonus. There is also a gas effect fire which is nice but the heating is so effective it was really warm. The open plan style inside is stunning and lots of windows give great light during the day. It is so quiet no noisy neighbours the perfect place to get away. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking as we were staying over Xmas and had to cook vast amounts of roasted vegetables etc. All in all highly reccomend.
