The first few days were very hot, and it was lovely just to sit in the garden and read and snooze. After that we had some great days out - you can reach so many great places from this location. We had a problem when the boiler failed, and Roma and Alistair sorted it out as quickly as it was possible to do, and even offered us their own bathroom for showering while it was being sorted. Our grown up daughters stayed with us for a week - as they did before, and were planning a return visit while they were still there! It has it's quirks, as you would expect from an older building with character; it was clean and comfortable, has pretty much most things you could need, is in a lovely location, and the owners are very friendly and helpful - what's not to like? We may yet be back again!
