A bit of a drive from town, but nice comfortable beds and sofa.

  • 4 of 5

A bit of a drive from town, but nice comfortable beds and sofa. Decent sized kitchen for doing your own cooking if you want.

The pool is attached to the main family home rather than the guest house (which is suggested but not clear from the online photos).
