A very spacious house & garden. Well equipped especially for children. The garden secure & safe for children & pets. Very tall people might struggle a little with sloping ceilings in the bedrooms & bathrooms, but it didnt spoil our holiday. The owners were very friendly & accommodating. Would definitely recommend.
