We arrived and were welcomed by the owners who showed us round the property. We found it to be very clean and comfortable with everything you could possibly need. The owners had kindly left milk,butter etc in the fridge which was great. We would have no hesitation recommending this property and have been telling all our friends. Fordyce is a beautiful wee village and we had a lovely time here...we only wished we'd booked it for a few days longer!
