Lovely and private. excellent host.
Lovely and private. Ideal location to unwind and recharge the batteries. The owners live opposite, and are at hand if needed, but not intrusive at all. very warm welcome on arrival, but then left us to our own devices. With the private pool literally just outside the barn, what more would you want. Would go again
