                                                              Great break with the family.

                                                              We all had a great time here. The place is lovely- clean, well thought out and away from the roads. It is still within a close distance to get to the local shops by car but also surrounded by fields and footpaths to explore- next time we are taking our bikes! The owner, Martin, is superb: friendly and couldn't do enough for you. We will definitely go back next year.
