The beds were comfortable and the kitchen fully equipped with everything you might need. There was a lovely welcome basket on arrival, which included a cake and a bottle of wine. The garden was very well tended with table and chairs front and back. We couldn't have been made to feel more at home. There were plenty of maps and brochures for walking and sight seeing and it was nice being able to go walking from the house.
