Its the little touches that Neville and Liz do that really add up: the welcome milk in the fridge, bottle of wine, sherry, washing powder and them having already put the kettle on for our arrival on a cold miserable day.

The views are spectacular and the house just lovely to be in, my only slight complaint was that if you are there in a cold spell, the one electric heater isn't quite enough to heat the living room. But I'd go back in a flash
