    “The location was excellent, close to many interesting and vibrant towns and the coast, not a great road for the last half a mile with no passing places.”

    The property was exceptionally well-equipped and all the items provided were in perfect condition. The sinks in the bedrooms were strange and not very functional and no chest of draws in Bedroom 2 and no wardrobe in either bedroom was an inconvenience. Overall it was to a very high standard and spotless.
