    "To future occupants - you are in for a treat! The scenery, comfort and cosiness here is near impossible to beat (plus there are tons of places to eat!). Dennis made sure we knew how to stoke the fire (we didn't burn the place down!). This house is ideal to hire. Thank you, we loved staying here."
