My wife and I wanted to visit a quiet place with a fire place. We found it here! Well appointed facilities and the most friendly staff - the warm atmosphere will certainly bring us back. Thank you.

This was a great surprise. Friendly staff! The accommodation was clean, beds so comfortable and such an experience to wake up with rain poring down on the roof. Great for a romantic getaway or even a nights' stay with the family. 👌🏻

Great to see a project devoted to cultural heritage that is authentic and real as opposed to touristy. The staff were genuinely passionate about what they do and were most welcoming to us as a large group.
