The welcome extended by Mark and Fiona was effusive and they could not have been more helpful. The rooms, although not overly large were clean and comfortable. A microwave oven is available but although cutlery and crockery are not initially provided they are freely available on request. The bathrooms are a little compact but more than adequately equipped.All in all... More
