What a fantastic place to spend your holidays. Me and my wife and two children have spent our February half term over there and what a fantastic experience we've had. Firstly, the flat is much bigger than it looks on the pictures, the living room is very spacious and the sofa bed is a decent size so our kids could sleep comfortably together(bear in your mind that they're 15 and 12, so not so little), well equipped kitchen with everything you need and I mean everything, nice bathroom with shower and a bedroom with gigantic comfortable bed and wardrobe, even iron is there! Plenty to do in the area if you like walking. The owners Tim and Su are fantastic and very welcoming people, if you like dogs then you can invite Ruby their dog to visit you in the flat and she will enjoy it very much especially if you give her some sausages (sorry Tim and Su ). At overall highly recommend this place. Arek and Joanna

What a superb base for exploring the locale! It was a haven of tranquillity after a tiring day.
