Amazing family vacation - will be back
Part of me doesn’t want to write this review as I don’t want this place to become too well known! It’s even nicer in real life than the pictures. It’s very clear this is a family home and has been set out as such. This means all the homely touches and coziness you would expect back homes. They have all the bits you would need from kitchen roll, washing liquid to dvds for the family to enjoy on their huge screen in the play room. We have 3 boys with us (11-13) and a 13 girl and they all enjoyed the vast array of water toys on offer. Especially the water trampoline. Loads of life vests are available too. As for scenery it was so beautiful and peaceful. During the week there is hardly anyone else there so you almost feel like you have the lake to yourself. We watched the morning mist rolling across the lake, stunning. There are a few snakes in the surrounding bushes (not under the owners control obviously) but it worth being aware of if you children are racing around. We mainly saw them in the morning sunning themselves by the dock and then soon disappeared once the children appeared. As far as I can tell they are not poisonous but I thought people should be aware so as to not go off paths. This is definitely not a party villa but if you are a few families looking for a peaceful lake break, this is the place for you. Will be back!
