Review submitted by Lisa from London, UK (Submitted: 20 Aug 2008)
This is a charming property, which provided an excellent base for us. We visited the surrounding area with ease. Shops and supermarkets are within 5 minutes drive as are restaurants. The property itself is clean and airy. We are both tall and found the large, long bed very suitable. Bathroom and kitchen facilities were excellent as was the changing of towels and bed linen. Use of washing machine and drying area ensured a comfortable stay. A very helpful proprietor meant that any questions were immediately solved. The steps at the entrance to the property could be a difficulty for those with mobility problems.
