Hayley is a wonderful host, the supplies in the cabin were outstanding, there is nothing she hasn't thought of. We saw squirrels, heard owls as well as two woodpeckers communicating to one another, Bird sound all around, that and the view of fields beyond fields beyond fields, was Bliss. Heating was fantastic and lashings of hot water, all mod cons, and a well stocked local shop nearby. We shall without doubt be back again, the perfect sanctuary! Thank you :)

The house was lovely, well maintained, clean and had everything that we could ask for - even table tennis in the court yard. Our stay was perfect and the owner was friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this property.
