The bed was awful. So hard it was like sleeping on the floor. The couch is also very saggy. The bathroom was old.

The location is beautiful and the hosts are so welcoming & lovely. It is a guest house so you are connected directly to your Neighbour’s. It was enjoyable for us but just to say, your Neighbour’s are important!

The property is perfectly positioned to explore the whole area. Lovely setting and fine attention to detail from the owners. We wanted something that didn't feel like a hotel room. The gables ticked this box.
