Plenty of logs provided for the woodburner and more towels than we would ever need. Beds are comfortable, showers are hot and powerful. Kay welcomed us and was on-hand if we needed anything. Our two children helped every day with the feeding of the al pacas and goats and it truly made their holiday. We spent many hours sitting with the animals as was fascinating to watch them. The weather was very kind to us so the tennis court was well used. We had a very special week. Thank you.

It was super clean with lots of really thoughtful touches: lovely snacks and tea/coffee/fresh milk we're waiting for us when we arrived. I would highly recommend.
