Avalon was spotlessley clean. Extremeley well equipped, lovely comfy beds. The location was very quiet as not on a through road, but accessible for beaches and town. Our 3yr old Grandson loved the house with the 'secret staircase' ! Had to hire a baby gate though, would be handy if one in situ. Thouroughly enjoyed our stay with great weather.
