“Almost perfect in all regards”
Reviewed December 31, 2012 for a stay in December 2012

We just got back from staying here Christmas week and we had a great time.

Picking the keys up on arrival day was an easy process and 5 minutes later we were pulling up into our private parking space at the rear of the building. A single flight of stairs takes you to a lift which gives access to both floors of the property.

Opening the door, slight concerns around cleanliness (due to previous reviews) were quickly forgotten as the place was clean in all areas. The bedrooms were of a good size and all agreed the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was the best of both worlds having both a large bath and an actual shower cubicle.

The open plan upper floor was a good size for 3 people to spend a week in. The kitchen area had all bases covered with all the major appliances but being people who like to bake and make our own food on holiday we just felt it lacked a few utensils such as a set of scales, a sieve and slotted spoon etc.

The sitting area comprised of two perfectly comfortable leather two-seater sofas and a foot rest. Although as other reviewers have mentioned the tv is in my opinion, despite having been updated since the picture was taken, unacceptably small. I recently purchased a 32 inch tv for £195 and don't think this should be beyond the owners of this property when you consider the rental price. And whilst they are at it perhaps a dvd player that can be had for around £30.

Despite these minor concerns, it has to be said the views from the upper floor are stunning. There is nothing quite like watching the sun go down or rise over a mountain.

A bonus was that my mother-in-law was able to access these views due to the lift. When we booked this property we did not know if that would be the case but it meant they could come round for Christmas dinner so it was all good.
