Initially we were disappointed to be so far away from the town but once we had established that a shuttle could transport us to the local restaurants we were reassured. Our hosts were delightful, friendly and hospitable. Their recommendations for where to eat and what to do were superb. The whole setting was idyllic and we really enjoyed being in...

We really enjoyed our stay at this place. The beds were the most comfortable I have ever slept in. The rooms and bathroom were well appointed and the breakfast was really nice. They lit a fire in the breakfast diningroom which made it warm and cosy. The rooms were a bit cold and could do with a better heating system.
