Our hosts couldn't have been more helpful and did everything they could to ensure we made the best of our holiday, recommending things to see and events that would be of interest in the locality.

Beautiful views, tranquil setting and very well appointed accommodation. The owners are lovely, and the welcome basket of breads, pastries, jams etc was very much appreciated after a long drive. The hot tub is great, and makes for a great, relaxing end to the day. We loved it...again!
