Dr Davies, Birmingham, September 2012
Ease of access and superb accommodation all on one level which made it so much easier for my disabled father to enjoy his break. The care and attention to detail and friendly approach from our hosts, for whom nothing was too much trouble. Lovely secluded and peaceful location.
