Lovely Property in a Lovely Location
Excellent communication. Ample parking. The property was immaculate, with a nice mix of modern and antique furniture. The kitchen had everything you could need, and more. Comfortable beds. Lovely grounds with great views, and we were treated to a couple of amazing sunsets. Would definitely stay here again.

Just lovely!
Renovated with care and attention, Eight Balls is a lovely, spacious and well equipped "home" combining elegance and comfort. The owners were friendly, welcoming but not intrusive. A great place to relax but with many options of things to do and places to go within easy access.

Beautiful cottage with everything you could need
Beautiful cottage, elegantly furnished and well equipped with much more than the standard self-catering fare: plenty of loo rolls, kitchen towels, dishwasher tablets, cleaning products, oil, even herbs and spices. Lovely outdoor space too, and a friendly welcome from the owners.
