Wonderful stay at Max’s House - toasty warm, loads of space, well-equipped, super-friendly owner. Many thanks for having us
Joanne Reed
The house is great for large groups with families. We found a huge selection of toys and books for the kids. The kitchen was well equipped with all that you would need to cook and eat with. The beds were comfy and the house was warm with underfloor heating and the fire. The hosts were also very helpful and friendly to deal with. It's a well thought out and fantastic holiday home. We hope to stay at this home again in the future.
Such an lovely warm house! Super comfy beds and everything you could ever need.
