Guestbook comments from the owner

We've stayed in several great places but this one tops them all. We've been left alone to do as much or as little as we want, just what we needed to unwind. A very comfortable and luxurious place that has been an absolute pleasure to stay in. p.s loved walking around Lyme Regis, thanks
