“I cannot exaggerate how nice this house is - it will take your breath away.”

Reviewed 17 Feb 2013

We stayed from 31 Jan to 3 Feb 2013 and believe this is the best holiday home we have stayed in - the photo gallery does not, indeed cannot, do justice to this beautiful property. The house is decorated, furnished and equipped to a very high standard, with nice touches such as fresh flowers on arrival to milk in the fridge and a lovely teddy (with the house logo) to take away. The location of the property couldn't be any better with lovely views over the harbour out to the Irish Sea and sunset from the conservatory is simply stunning. PP is a very compact little village with a choice of eating places within 5 minutes walk but to take full advantage of the wonderful dining kitchen you really have to cook some meals in. We will definitely use this house again.
