Vanessa and Peter are superb hosts. Who would imagine a thatched and white walled town outside the UK, really beautiful. A varied option of places to visit and two adjacent golf courses. The icing on the cake was the accommodation and our hosts. Not huge, but ideally simple. A breakfast to die for and as much assistance as one could...

Greeted warmly by friendly owners who made us feel at home immediately. Room and bathroom were spacious enough. Breakfasts were excellently prepared fresh each morning and with plenty of choice. Added bonus is that it backs onto the town golf course so we took advantage of it!
