    “A little tired looking.”

    A very bad season for flies - we were inundated with them so much that we didn’t want to eat in our accommodation.

    A very bad season for flies - we were inundated with them so much that we didn’t want to eat in our accommodation. The kitchen very dark and dingy. Very very comfy bed and lovely bathroom. The surrounding were scenic and the sound of the geese warming. However very upset no animals as the description stated a “Working Farm”.
