    “What a beautiful house in a great location.”

    The owner was there on time to meet us and very welcoming.

    The owner was there on time to meet us and very welcoming. The property is huge! Perfect for us and our friends. Every bedroom has an ensuite bathroom which is a bonus. The kitchen is well equipped. The drawing room and quiet room are lovely. The house has a good secure, enclosed garden at the back of the property which is so important fir the dogs. There is a great little walk from the house down to the clapper bridge which is fantastic.
