"A wonderful house with plenty of room"

We had a lovely stay in this house. There was plenty of room for all of us-we stayed with my parents and my in laws, so we needed a big house! The bedrooms are spacious, each bedroom has a bathroom (except bunk bed room which we didnt use, which shares a bathroom) and the views from two of the rooms are just amazing. The hill is a little steep to get to town but it's very very near-so you aren't walking for long. It's just near the bus station. The only issue we had was that there was only one set of keys on arrival, so we had to get in touch with the owner twice to get an extra set (much needed with lots of people in one house) but once we had them it was a lovely relaxing stay. I would recommend and return again.
