Five Star accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 nights in September to attend a wedding nearby and were so pleased with the standard of accommodation - quiet, clean, modern and comfortable. There was even some bottled water and milk in the fridge for coffee/tea when we arrived. Coffee in the morning on the picnic table outside watching the chickens, squirrels and rabbits was heavenly. If you want to get away from it all but don't like leaving your home comforts behind this is the place for you. Thanks again Roz.
