It was clean, comfortable with a beautiful garden that we could use. The owner Huges was kindness its self. Anything we needed, he helped. The surrounding area is quite beautiful , but you do need a car. The only thing we found difficult were the restaurant times. Its ok if you like a 3 course lunch only between 12.30 & 2pm. You are very lucky to find restaurants open in the evenings, especially earlier in the week. Also ALL the shops close during the lunch break. Having said that we had a lovely restful time, with really nice sunny weather.
