Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Relaxer Our stay was amazing. A great opportunity to just get away and purely relax - even with 2 teenagers and a four legged fur baby! Everything we needed was there and the close proximity to the lake was wonderful. Being able to take our fur baby with us made this place even more enjoyable. Jim and Jane were great to deal with and have put together a great place to stay and relax

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing property We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the lake house ! Lake at your door, 10 mins drive to beaches . The house has all the mod cons, very clean and very comfortable. Bonus was being able to take our furry friends. Can't wait to go back !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful home The property is as described, which can be hard to find. Secure yards for dogs made our stay stress free! We had great fun on the water and were very comfortable with so many ammenities in the house. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely clean house in a beautiful location We booked the lake escape for a last minute family week-end break. Jim was very helpful in preparing the house for our arrival at very short notice (we booked the morning of the day we arrived). We have stayed at many self catering properties over the years and this was bar far the cleanest house we have stayed at. Everything you need is in the house and the secure gardens front and back were a real peace of mind for our furry family member to play safely. This all before you even talk about the location....stunning! A short drive to dog friendly and people friendly beaches but be ready for a 20min drive to the nearest main shop so better to bring groceries with you. Overall loved our stay and will certainly be back again.
