Very accomodating staff. Didn't check in until 7.30pm on a very cold winter's night. Margaret had very thoughtfully turned on the heating prior to my arrival, so it was great to step into a lovely warm , very clean tastefully decorated room.

We stayed in a three bedroom house, which was just great for us. There is a swimming pool and a little playground for the little ones just outside of the house. The house was very clean with our own parking space. Good location too with a nearby kids friendly restaurant.
