  • “Reading previous feedback i was concerned what the property would be like.”

    However when we saw the property we where pleasantly surprised, The facilities where very good, comfort also good based on this being a holiday home and an excellent location.

    However when we saw the property we where pleasantly surprised, The facilities where very good, comfort also good based on this being a holiday home and an excellent location. Only negative was the beds had wooden ends on so if you are tall then you cannot stretch out. But that is only an issue for tall people!
