The service was 1st class in every area, a minor complaint with the hot tub was dealt with instantly.
We rented the accommodation to hold our golden wedding in, it turned out to be perfect, it was spotlessly clean, and everything of good quality, but not of a quality that worried you,( bear in mind we had 15 guests all partying for a week ) that should you have a accident it could not easily be put right, all the bedrooms where of a very high standard and very comfortable, all our guests are still talking in glowing terms about our weeks celebration.
The location was fine, and local amenities acceptable, but once again we transported everything we where likely to need, and used very little of the local amenities.
I cannot praise too highly the property for what we hired it for, my only grumble was the quality of the pool table, we had arranged entertainment for every evening, one night being a pool competition, sadly the whole equipment was below a standard suitable for that use, so we had to make alternative arrangements for that evening. M ( not easy )
What a great weekend

We went for a 40th birthday and took 16 friends along with us. The house was just great in every way. We enjoyed the space, the kitchen and its cupboards full of stuff, the jacuzzi and the massive lounge with roaring fire. I would recommend this for a great weekend getaway with friends or family. It's in a fabulous location right by the sea and very private. My only bug was it was cold but we did go in November! Would definitely go again.
an amazing house and location

The location is very secluded and beautiful, perfect if you want to get away from it all. The house is so beautifully decorated, the rooms are luxurious, large and very clean.
The hot tub was great. The kitchen enormous and well stocked with crockery etc (although missing a corkscrew so we borrowed one from a neighbour, not a very big problem overall).
I'd definitely go back if I ever get the chance.
