    Quiet and relaxing with very high standards of equipment and facilities in the house A great base for exploring both near and far and a great place to retreat to when you return tired and weary The wood burner is brilliant and the kitchen very well equipped with high standard of equipment The shower was exceptional for a place in the middle of nowhere Overall thoroughly enjoyed our visit and Keith the owner was there when we needed him with an unusual issue early in our visit and attended after he finished work but otherwise left us to enjoy our break
