We arrived on the Friday and after being met by Hege we walked a recommended route to the pub where we intended to take our family for Sunday lunch on the big day. The valley and the surrounding views are picturesque. Our cottage was all I hoped for with two gardens facing different directions so we enjoyed the morning and evening sunshine. When our family arrived we all walked to the pub for lunch then enjoyed cake and champagne in the garden to complete the very happy day. We we enjoyed watching the cattle and the farm dog, Bella too. It is a place we would definitely consider visiting again. Peaceful, tranquil, off the beaten track, almost a hidden world. Thank you Hege. We enjoyed meeting you, together with your trusty "team". Our very best wishes for the future.
