Thank you for a lovely stay. Sally was so helpful, even made us some breakfast snackpacks as we left early the next day, and we loved all the personal touches that she has made to the accommodation. We were sad to leave!

Pros - Beautiful house and and comfortable facilities, furnished with good taste. Great location (not in the very center, but in the "posh" area, with the center walkable in 15 min). Friendly host. Cons - None really. There was no breakfast option, but the fresh fruit, milk and nice cereal options in the room were more than enough.

Sally made me feel very welcome and wanted. She treated me like family. The place is gorgeous, very clean, nice and fresh breakfast. It was just wonderful. Will stay there again in future.
