What our customers say
The apartment was extremely well equipped and beautifully presented. The beds were very, very comfortable( as my grandson said “this is luxury”) An added bonus was the wildlife we were able to see from our window. Deer, Red Squirrels, Rabbits as well as many species of birds coming to the feeders. The owners Malcolm & Elaine were very friendly & helpful. We will be back there again in 6 weeks and are encouraging friends to book up. Excellent
Comfortable and spacious accommodation. Well equipped kitchen. High quality finish throughout. We enjoyed the surrounding gardens, the red squirrels and visiting birds were a bonus.
The owners, Elaine and Malcolm, were lovely hosts, friendly and helpful. Would have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation.
