Lovely conversion. Although there are 4 properties all face different directions, so you actually feel detached! No noise from other properties. Good quality fixtures & fittings. Heat & hot water perfect. Grounds well maintained. Easy journeys to get to walks & nearest coast & National Trust properties.
