“Everything was as described plus a bottle of milk in fridge and a welcoming bottle of wine on kitchen worktop - so many toys and playthings for the children they didn't manage to play with more than a fraction of what was available - Because of other commitments we had only booked for the minimum period and regretted we had not been able to stay longer and enjoy the facilities to the full, as even the weather was good for the days we were there”
