    “As shown above, the property was in excellent condition, certainly deserving a five star accommodation status.”

    Rodger and Sue (the owners) were very friendly, but not intrusive, and made us feel very welcome with some lovely personal touches. Everything was catered for, and the property was warm and comfortable. Unfortunately, the outside staircase could make it prohibitive for elderly residents with heavy luggage. However, we are senior citizens and managed them ok as our son was with us. Outside lighting made the property safe and accessible. The weather was also very kind, so we really enjoyed ...
