A lovely large house with a beautiful garden, but has a few issues. There are no pegs if you do any washing. Some items not working like cooker hood, lights above mirrors etc. its a little bit tired in places but has the most comfortable beds.

Fabulous house and garden. Home from home for us. Local shops nearby. Easy access to all parts of the island. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be booking to stay again. The outside covered area was particularly good as we experienced a heavy rain shower one night and it was lovely to sit outside and hear the rain while keeping cosy and dry.

The cottage is well located and spacious for our family of five plus a dog. Good levels of equipment. The only issue was the heating timings appeared wrong i.e. came on really early morning and later in the evening, hence a bit chilly late afternoon.

A beautiful spacious house with a lovely large south facing dog-friendly garden. The veranda is a real bonus especially in the evenings and the patio is perfect for outdoor meals. Just be aware that what must be the only park in the UK that bans dogs is immediately behind this lovely property.

Fabulous house, very well equipped. Incredible garden and we loved sitting on the covered patio on the day it rained. There's something special about being out in the elements but still dry and warm. Two of our party saw the badgers one evening, which was a bonus.
