The property was well presented and maintained. The facilities for wheelchair users are excellent and of a very high standard. The only thing that could be done to improve the stay would have been an extra towel!

Location is near perfect. Quiet, yet near all amenities. Ideal base for our club MTB trip to 7stanes. The house was very clean, and rooms large and comfortable. Kitchen well appointed. Lovely patio/garden out the back with superb BBQ facilities. We'll be back.
