Just about everything we needed. Nice and warm and quiet.

The property was nice, a lovely area but what put us down was the cleanliness, the bedsheets were yellow and we had to wash every single one ourselves. Weve rented the adjacent property as well and it was the same story. They dont provide you with enough information of the house and utilities, the area and things to do,etc. Having at least a coupleRead more of towels would have been nice, as I dont think its something that other properties would neglect. Overal you dont really feel welcomed and we dont think well be back as weve had better experiences in the past. Hide
