Please note that if you want to book for 5 or more nights, it's usually cheaper to book for a week. Through the front door you enter the beamed living room, with wooden flooring and rugs. There's a cosy sitting area to one side (with TV/DVD and woodburner), and to the other side a fold-out dining table and chairs. The sideboard contains games for all ages, and the bookcase has a wide selection of books and DVDs. Wireless broadband is provided.
