Wonderful break in a peaceful location

5 of 5
We arrived early, just to make sure we could find the place, intending to go for some groceries before we checked in. The owners saw us arrive. They welcomed us warmly and allowed us to start the week there and then. The kitchen was equipped with everything necessary and then more. There was enough glassware, crockery and cutlery for an occupancy of ten rather than four. Everything was spotlessly clean, the beds were comfortable and the open areas well furnished. Should we have wished to make use of them there were dvds (including childrens' movies), a wide variety of games and plenty of books (some in English). The location was ideal for us. Our granddaughter particularly enjoyed the nearby birdlife park and the Serengeti safari park, both were excellent value for money made all the more so because the owner gave us a vougher for free child access to Serengeti park. Bergen-Belsen was also only a short drive away and well worth a visit. We thank our hosts for what was a very good break and we would not hesitate to book again if we visit that part of Germany in the future.
