Perfect central location with so much to do in the surrounding areas. We will definitely be back in the summer to make the most of the garden. If I could suggest anything it would be to maybe have a torch available as there is no outside light in the garden and also maybe a chalk board on the wall to write reminders/notes/lists on!?
