It is beautifully presented and everything is of a high quality inside. The owners are there if you need them but do not intrude, you feel welcome to share the lovely site. It is rather remote and access is via a long farm lane but that added to the charm for us. Despite its seclusion It was very easy to get to north and south towns and beaches. A perfect self-catering getaway with the feel of a boutique hotel, we would love to come again. Highly recommended.
