Guest Book Comments

Everything is perfect. The only thing is one of seats is not so comforteble for us maybe someone else does not mind. We are both very large and then it is not so nice.

I think ifs they address the underfoor heating and leave instructions how to work it would have been better..but we still had a lovely holiday. .
