Everything you need to make a break special. We spent a week here in June and made use of the hot tub, the excellent sauna, and had visits from the masseur. Truly undisturbed tranquillity and we will be back.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay in the lovers hideaway. The setting is stunning, the room is gorgeous and the hot tub is utterly fantastic. We loved every minute of it! The view from this hideaway is great. You feel so secluded. Perfect for getting away from it all. We will definitely be back!!!
