    “We stay in many self-catering accommodations and Mellows is right at the top for cleanliness, equipment and comfort.”

    Lovely secure garden and the house is situated a few hundreds yards from the House in the Clouds. The owners have gone out of their way to furnish and equip to a high standard. We would highly recommend the Mellows.
