The renovated barn, in a small community of friendly neighbours, was beautifully furnished, clean and offered many little extras to make our stay very comfortable. Would certainly recommend.

Easy to find, quiet location, beautiful views and a well looked after cottage with a great wood burning stove. Had a wonderful stay there and met some lovely people.
