The proprietors were lovely, they were very helpful and... More

This was a 4 Day/3 Night New Year break with David Urquhart Coach Travel and, taking into account it was a fairly late booking and a relatively low price in comparison with some others on offer, turned out to be fair value for what was on offer.
