  • Lovely quiet location

    Lovely quiet location. Impeccably clean, with fresh, smart décor. Great heating. A real treat to have an ensuite attached to each bedroom. Such a comfortable sleep we all slept in! We were out all day so couldn't take full advantage of all that was provided but it looked very well equipt. Chocolate brownies on arrival :) Thanks Ruth!
