5/5 Excellent

Wonderful accommodation and wonderful hosts! Thank yoy
Can’t fault a thing .. will definitely stay there again, next time we’re in the area!

5/5 Excellent

Perfect accommodation for a group
The property’s layout is quirky (it’s a former factory) but it worked well for a group of ‘mature’ friends, with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. It was spotless and well equipped, located close to a supermarket but away from the main road. Highly recommended.

5/5 Excellent

Absolutely unbelievable
Myself, husband, children and grandchildren enjoyed 4 nights. The property is amazing, everything clean and so welcoming. The complimentary bottle of wine, was appreciated as was the fully stocked pantry and kitchen utensils. Very comfortable beds and stocked bathrooms were great. Robert was constantly in contact with sight seeing advise and ideas, he graciously posted home to us some items left behind. We truely cannot recommend this venue highly enough.
