The Old Custom House is situated in a remote and lovely spot in the peace of the forest but still accessible to many places of interest. Passau and Deggendorf should not be missed and it is only a short drive into Czechoslovakia. The nearby Gasthaus does excellent food and the area is perfect for walkers. The accommodation was comfortable (although there was no microwave although the description said there was) and we appreciated the fresh bread that was delivered each morning. We hope to return!

Property was exceptional, well equipped with everything most people would require. Ideal location for walking, cycling and visiting the Bavarian Forest. Village a 5 mins. walk away with shop and excellent hotel for evening meals. 1st class well worth the long drive from England and look forward to a return visit.
