Staff & service




Property conditions & facilities

4/5 Good

Good for a short break
Car parking space at the rear of the property was a bit tight for two cars. Some of the pots & pans could do with a refresh. The grill oven needed a good clean; however the main oven/range was impressive. There was a very good shower in the bathroom. Overall, the accommodation was clean and spacious, and the Welcome pack was appreciated.
