    “We were highly delighted with this accommodation.”

    It was dark when we arrived so we didn't get an immediate feel for the surroundings, but when we got inside we were very pleasantly surprised. There had been a light left on for us, so we weren't fumbling in the dark, which was thoughtful. The first impression was that it was tastefully decorated and furnished to a high standard, it was impeccably clean with a spacious kitchen/living area. The bedroom had plenty of storage with a dressing table and mirror. The bed was comfortable too. The shower ...

    It was dark when we arrived so we didn't get an immediate feel for the surroundings, but when we got inside we were very pleasantly surprised. There had been a light left on for us, so we weren't fumbling in the dark, which was thoughtful. The first impression was that it was tastefully decorated and furnished to a high standard, it was impeccably clean with a spacious kitchen/living area. The bedroom had plenty of storage with a dressing table and mirror. The bed was comfortable too. The shower in the bathroom was excellent. Once we had unpacked and set about making tea, it didn't go unnoticed how well the kitchen was stocked with every utensil and appliance you could possibly need. The settee was large and comfortable too. We stayed during a chilly and wet week, and the accommodation was always cosy. A big shout out for the goodies left for us, and the booklet left with information also proved very useful. A lovely quiet location, not too far off the beaten track, with a well-maintained driveway. All in all, a fabulous accommodation with no complaints from us; we are already talking of booking again for next year. Thank you.
