The house and land is pretty much as described. The children spent a lot of time down on the jetty - swimming or in the boat. There are life vests in a cupboard on the ground floor of the house and a life buoy on the jetty so it's all pretty safe. Stefan kindly bought some second hand bikes which he put in the garage for us. There were no helmets but we didn't cover big distances and the roads are quiet. We had a lovely week in an idyllic setting.

This place is very lovely. The photos do not do it justice. The grounds surrounding the house are huge! We saw an otter in the lake, deer multiple times in the garden. It is beautiful and peaceful-we had a very memorable family holiday here with our first baby and her grandparents and uncles! Thanks Stefan

Stefan was a very lovely and helpful host. the communication was just perfect and when we needed help, stefan helped us immediatly. The house has a perfect place at the see and in the nature. it was exactly how it was shown in the pictures. the garden was very huge and we played a lot of games there. we also spent a lot of space at the see and on the boat. we also cought some pikes. the one and only negative point was the cleanness. The citchen wasnt cleaned good enough when we arrived. Some citchen items werent that usable; for example some knifes which werent sharp enough. the house itself is just perfect and really had every item we needed. We would recommend this house to everyone- it was just perfect and stefan is e perfect host!

The house itself is compact but highly functional and easily accommodated 4 adults and 3 kids with lots of outside patio/dining space. The grounds are beautiful, we saw deer and badgers in the garden and pulled a few pike from the lake. We spent a week which flew by with good weather. Highly recommend.

Stevan's house is in a beautiful and peaceful location which is south facing; the veranda is actually quite warm in the sun! We really enjoyed our stay and would love to come back in the future.
