The view you wake up to is stunning the owners are very welcoming and friendly. Sort problems right away (light bulb went in the bathroom). With a child who has OCD she was very overwhelmed at how clean it was and wants to go again. We had a lovely time playing with the board games supplied even though we had a few sore losers 😂. Amazing area and will be returning!

To wake up and look out to see such a variety of birds swooping in to the garden was wonderful and only bettered by the visit of the red squirrels that scampered out of the trees and along the garden wall. We also enjoyed a number of short walks in and around the area. Perfect!
