    We stayed here the first week of July 2020 when the country had been reopened after the first lockdown. The owner had taken every step necessary to ensure all COVID-19 guidelines were adhered to. The place was immaculate. Hand sanitizer was provided in the hall and extra cleaning products were provided in the kitchen. I think possibly the previous reviewers describe the place better than I can - it is everything they say and more. And yes, I too am reluctant to share the secret Suffice to say: The host Mary Rose was a lady and could not do enough for us. We were greeted with a warm “socially distanced” welcome, flowers in the hall, lit candles, classical music and a bottle of red wine. Interior finished to an extremely high standard. The pictures do not do it justice, it is much more spacious and luxurious than it appears. Lake was a joy and an adventure. Felt like a trip back to another world. Have booked return visit already for next year, fingers crossed will be able to go. Highly highly recommend.
