Two ensue bedrooms and an additional family bathroom for children were a real bonus. Convenient for all activities and venues while being quiet and secluded.Sitting area at back looking into forest ideal for bbq evenings. Seeing a variety of birds including a woodpecker feeding in the garden every day, red squirrels climbing the trees and a pine martin was very entertaining. We would definitely recommend a visit and will be back.
