Having holidayed ourselves with a young family in past years we found we preferred to stay in self catering accommodation set in more private settings, as opposed to commercial Hotels catering for the masses. Some of the best places we have stayed in had furnishings and personal items such as DVD's, books, local and Tourist information etc which really made it feel like you were staying in a home rather than an empty, sparsely furnished apartment. So, with all that in mind this is what we have set out to provide with our Holiday home and gardens. Reading reviews like this makes us feel like it is all worth while. We hope when this family returns we will have more information and improvements to further enhance their holiday experience here at home and in the surrounding areas. Cam and Brad ~ the dogs and pool are waiting for you !!!
