Fabulous short stay in wonderful barn accommodation

5 of 5
Everything was excellent from the minute we booked the accommodation to the second we departed after a three night stay. Riki and Martin were very friendly and welcoming. The barn accommodation is first class - cannot be faulted in any way whatsoever. We will definitely return when next in the area.
