This house was amazing and perfect in every way for our family spending Christmas there. The owners have thought of everything which made it very comfortable for a week. The heating, hot water, water pressure, kitchen equipment and general extras were all perfect. Would highly recommend any one thinking of going to Elgol to stay in this house. Thank you.
