  • Was a brilliant stay

    Was a brilliant stay. Do not know what the previous comments were on about with the room being cold in winter. Recommended in both service from owner, location and the quality of the room layout. 5 stars from me for a small retreat :D.

  • Not a good value for money, at least in winter

    Not a good value for money, at least in winter. But the host's jam was delicious!

    Owner/manager responds:

    Our pricing is set at 20% below the local market price for equivalent accomodation. For some, price will always be an issue, regardless.

  • Delicious berry jam left out for us

    Delicious berry jam left out for us. Enjoyed the fresh apples and the walnuts. Would recommend this accommodation to our friends. The girls sleeping in the new whare found it a bit cold during the night.
