Very quiet as in street noise but lack of soundproofing made it very noisy from unit above

Very helpful owners. Spacious unit. Shower water pressure good, but shower rose was a bit low for a 6ft tall person. Quiet location, looked like a good kids play area and plenty of room for kids to run around. Free use of washing machine was appreciated.

We were in an older unit, there are some new ones. Very clean and partly refurbished inside, but kitchen cupboards and wardrobes old and smelt musty. Free use of washing machine and washing lines with pegs thoughtfully available. Facilities if you have children very good with play area and the pool. On the downside it is quite a long hike (15-20 mins) to town shops cafes and restaurants. The location is part residential part, rural (overlooking orchards) but some light industrial units near by, though there was no problem with any noise.
