The area is lovely, the locals are all friendly and Rachel is the perfect hostess. This five star property is also perfectly situated as it's a two minute walk from fantastic pubs and restaurants. We would definitely recommended it and can't wait to come back soon. Thanks again Rachel.

That is the opinion of all of us not just me and of course the girls Ladies over 60) were taken with the tasteful decor. We brought home more than we have ever done as not even logs to buy for the fire. Brilliant! However we would like to keep this our secret as we do not want it becoming to popular. We are considering a repeat visit in late October if diaries of everyone can do this. Many many thanks.
