Comfortable beds, sofas and very well equipped kitchen. Only downside was the shower. Country walk through the gate at the rear of the property down to a stream was breathtaking and very enjoyable. Perfectly situated for exploring.

The "Standard" is set very high since then! Started with a warm welcome and many little things made us feel home from the first minute ! This stay made our vacation PERFECT. Everything needed is available and also in high quality and shape. Good distance to all places. Very quiet ! We would recommend it without any doubts! Thank you very much Tracey and Mark Hope to meet again soon Gaby & Richard
