Beautiful accommodation in lovely surrounds with very accommodating hosts. The hosts went out of there way to make sure we were settled & that we had everything for our stay including recommendations for dinner & sight seeing. Breakfast was amazing & we would stay there again.

The rooms are pretty decorated and big (we got an upgrade) and they are full of things you can use (exp. cd/dvd player, kitchen articles), so it makes you feel like home. It is quiet and the garden is beautiful. It was absolutely lovely and the... More
