    “What a lovely house, we enjoyed our stay, didn't want to leave.”

    The only downside we found was that it could have done with a vacuum throughout, carpets were very messy (if it had been vacuumed, I would suggest a new machine is required!) The bathrooms, kitchen and beds were immaculate and fresh. One note to add is that it would be helpful to have instructions for the equipment, bit of a trial and error at times. Basically, great holiday, to future guests, enjoy the view from the view, it's amazing!
