Liked best: The house, the views, the locality and the friendly warm reception from the owners
Liked least: There was nothing to dislike in our experience-other than the 'runner' in the hall which needed to be replaced or attched to the main carpet.

Eric and Helen were very friendly and helpul.
The house is really exceptional : very large and comfortable, the sights from it are beautiful. Besides, it has an historical character and the atmosphere is especially cosy.
The area is very interesting : it's near breathtaking landscapes and most people were very nice. We had a great time and excellent memories.
