    Additional Rate and Availability Information
    An explanation as to why the price you might have expected differs from that we have quoted. Holiday Lettings' front page for our property indicates a minimum daily price; this is generated by Holiday Lettings and is calculated by dividing the weekly rate by seven. We have no control of this figure and it does not reflect our pricing policy correctly which is based on a weekly charge with a discount for shorter stays.
    Visitors are welcome to book short breaks and week long visits throughout the year.
    A discounted rate can be arranged, should you wish to arrange a longer stay.
    Please enquire direct about availability over the Christmas holidays.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

A large, spacious, and very well equipped apartment. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The apartment was spotlessly clean. There is a huge library of books. This is a great place to get away from it all and relax.
Stayed for a week and really enjoyed it. We will be back.
