    “Wonderful information and support from the host John, excellent peace and quiet and in the week we managed to make the majority of the things to do listed in the guide provided on arrival- all of which were first class.”

    Pool was great to cool down in the hot weather and the selection of DVDs and fire would be superb in less temperate weather! But luckily we didn’t need them and spend most of our time in the great outdoors.
