  • “We had a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable stay.”

    We were very sad to leave and would love to come back as we feel there is so much more to see and do in the area. The house has been a great base, is well equipped and clean with beautiful views to enjoy in the evening. There are so many beautiful walks in the area and the food in the local inn was delicious. Thank you for a lovely stay!
