Reviewed 5 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We were more than pleasantly surprised to find that this property lived up to both its photos and marketing material. The owners Karen and Gerry were really great to deal with and we found it to be everything we were looking for for a few quiet days with everything in easy walking distance and would certainly return.

Management response:

It was our pleasure to host you. Thank you so much for your lovely review, we hope to see you again too. Best regards from Karen and Gerry
