Comfortable house apart from the sitting room; the front door opens on to this room, which doesn't help. The lighting in the sitting room is poor and we all felt that the house was great, apart from the sitting room. However, we all had a lovely holiday and would recommend this property despite the comments above. Great location for family with teenagers.
