Cathy was so kind and helpful and we will be coming back as we didn't have enough time to see all the sights. The photo's really don't do this place justice !!!!!!

We have been to the area many times, and it was the perfect base to explore from and come home to. We even managed to cook a roast dinner for 8 people (and two toddlers) as the house was so well equipped. Check in and out very easy and flexible, and great communication from Sara. Would recommend to friends and family. Great pub next door and delicious meal in Beamers.
