Absolute Bliss. A wonderful retreat to nature.

5 of 5
Seeing this property we knew straight away what a find on Homeaway website we had made because of all the other places that could have drawn us in, this one was beautiful in every way. It was like a picture postcard, perfect in every aspect from the stunning gardens and surrounding woodlands to the features in Kerstins grounds like the playgroung for kids, the outdoor sauna & hot tub. Then when we got into our lovely, pristine cottage and saw everything that was supplied we couldn't wait to get unpacked and start our relaxing holiday away from all the hustle and bustle of daily city life. Every thing was perfect, and hopefully some time soon we will return. Thank you Kerstin for being you and keeping such a jewel in the forest. Warmest regards from Harry, Anne-marie and Titch the Border terrier.
