Lovely house well equipped and large enough for 10 people not to feel overcrowded. We enjoyed the walks round the estate and saw a lot of wildlife flourishing there.

It is a highly individual,interesting, comfortable and well equipped, family holiday home. The location is idyllic if you like isolation. It is in the middle of fields, on the edge of a wood and overlooking the coast,which does mean that there is half a mile of stony track to get there. We felt it was well worth the effort but it may not be everyonRead moree's, preference. For us, a group of elderly friends it was the best holiday we had together in many years. Hide
