  • We were here for a night for the Dragon Boat nationals

    We were here for a night for the Dragon Boat nationals. The home is beautifully built and a prefect setting, the pictures don't do justice. Everything you could need for a mini break and wonderful hosts. Would stay again whenever in the region.
