The property is in a great place, with great views from the bedroom windows, the house as all mod cons, like a great shower, a bath tub that two can easily fit in, fully equipped kitchen and washer and dryer, it even has internet.

This was our first Christmas at Guardswood and the owners had prepared it thoroughly including a Christmas tree and welcome tray. The cabin is warm and cosy offering 5 star accomodation. We had yet another wonderful stay at Guardswood. The owners take great care in preparing and welcoming guests by offering close yet discrete care. I highly recommend te log cabins and as we have stayed here on four occasions, each one being wonderful.
