    As keen walkers and runners, we didn't use the car once during our stay! The accommodation is spacious (although there were only two of us) and the kitchen well equipped for self catering. The check in and check out was super easy, details provided beforehand was also timely and informative. Only two slight niggles 1) only two dishwasher tablets and one loo roll in each toilet which meant a shopping trip was needed, for the price paid we would have thought there would be sufficient supplies of these two essentials 2) also although it was surface clean the property could do with a deep clean to get rid of the cobwebs, limescale etc. But would definitely stay here again.
