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 couldn't have needed more. Everything was provided, clean and comfortable. We got woken each morning by birds singing rather than traffic. All facilities on site were also great, pool was clean and good temperature although the outdoor would have been rather chilly! We would def come back as there is more to see and we wouldn't find a nicer place than Colver. Just remember to look in the draw of the coffee table for some information books! Thank you Elaine.
