Reviewed 2 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Very high standard of decoration and a lovely kitchen. Lovely and warm when you have got the storage heating to run during the first night. Lots of nice touches with games/books etc. Have never used a wood burner and didn't need it. Both sea and Moors are just 10-15 minutes away. Many thanks.
