Situated just a couple of minutes walk from the village, easy to find and very attractively presented. Nothing not to like!

Warm, clean, comfortable bed, nice shower, Sky TV. Compact studio unit with only one chair and coffee table. Only problem was very limited space to use toaster and electric jug as microwave took up most of the limited bench space and had to wash dishes in bathroom.
