We stayed here in September with family. The facilities are very good plenty of sitting room. The enclosed garden was brilliant for our dog and he was always looking out for the roaming chickens. The owners are very friendly and will help with anything. We would stay here again

Management response:

Thank you Gareth - we would love to welcome you all again.
