It's right in the heart of this quaint little fishing village with enough cafes and restaraunts in walking distance to not bother with cooking, even for breakfast. But if cooking is your thing you will not be disappointed; the German kitchen is beautifully equipped. We really enjoyed quality of the furnishing, and inteligent design of the interior. The sizeable garden is a massive plus in the summer I'm sure. What a find!

The welcome gifts were wonderful too - thank you Julie and Michael for being great hosts! We would love to come back and would recommend Hufflepuff.
