“Peaceful quality private family time”

Reviewed 7 Mar 2014

Great House, extremely well equipped with laundry, kitchen, BBQ, dishes and cookware all in great condition. Perfect for quality family time together. The sports facilies were brill. There was fishing equipment, ping pong (table tennis) push bikes and of course the pool. The local village was a beautiful two mile walk away. The locals were extremely friendly and welcoming. Both my mum, my sisters family and my family really enjoyed our time together, and returned home very relaxed. This is a rural location, so take bug plugs to ensure complete pleasure. We booked immediately to return the following year.
