    “All 4 party members comments mirrored my own.”

    Very comfortable, spacious, extremely clean and well stocked. We would happily stay there again. We were lucky with the weather and enjoyed lunch and an afternoon on the garden relaxing. One of our party had a pacemaker, so he was banned from being in close range to the induction hob when in use.
