  • Fabulous, I had a great time hosting my family from the UK

    Fabulous, I had a great time hosting my family from the UK. A comfortable place to stay, with all the facilities, a well equipped kitchen and a fantastic location to explore the area. Was great to take the kids onto the farm and to feed the sheep. We had a wonderful stay. I'll be sure to bring some other friends to stay another time. Thank you Lyn.

    This is the perfect place to stay. There are three bathrooms, a big kitchen and living area and a huge dining table. The place is so warm, in a great location and has everything you need. Our group loved it and will definitely be back to stay. We thoroughly recommend it.
