Lovely little bungalows give peace and privacy, nestled among well maintained gardens. Always a good choice of food, especially the barbeque.. Excellent value for money. Bungalows were spacious but the bathrooms could do with an update, also the shower gels and shampoos could be replaced more regularly, we ran out of soap and it was never replaced . Plenty of...
