Love that they have dogs :)
The house is really such a cute space - you really feel like you are in someone's very cosy home, from the decor, the fireplace, and even the lovely dogs! Service was friendly and helpful, everything was clean and tidy from the bathrooms to the kitchen, and I had a wonderful stay.
