The house was clean and welcoming and easy to find from given directions. Location is excellent and facilities very good. The only minor problem was lack of really hot water, but we didn't bother to contact the given number and thus could have resolved this, I suspect. Would be excellent for a longer break. The people in the local shops were very friendly.
