Nice and helpful host. The location is good, just 2 minute drive from the church. The room is not as big as I expected, but still very comfortable and you have everything you need. The cooked breakfast is good, you can have a full one.

We stayed one night here. The rooms are separated from the owners' part of the house by only a door but it feels more separate than that. The room itself was fine, if a bit stark, and the welcome a bit 'functional' - here's how the tv works etc and please can you choose breakfast (either cooked or continental) now.... More
