The only criticism would be we only had half a toilet roll left and the salt was near empty so we did have drive out on Xmas day to try and fi nd a shop open for those items and tea bags, sugar. The shower really needs a new head or de-scale as it's very low pressure and shoots water at all angles. Toilet seat need tighten also. Really not big issRead moreues but I hope you appreciate feedback. Thanks again Hide

Great for a long weekend. Ideally situated, friendly helpful staff. Dog washing point was great! The addition of a dog poo bin would elevate it! Would revisit

It was very good accommodation and we could not have asked for more. The surroundings were perfect for what we wanted, plenty of long walks with the dogs and very peaceful. Kate was extremely helpful and always available to help. We will certainly be going back again.
