Thanks for your lovely review, we are really glad you had a fab time.....we have had several comments about not having a fire, the chimney needs a lot of work and has always been out of use, so we have taken on board our guests comments and a new wood burning stove is being fitted 29/1/2014 which we are really pleased about so thanks! The wifi is sometimes on and off when really windy, we are right at the end of the exchange but we have had good connection mostly. We are hopefully going to be getting up to 20mb in 2014! Hope to see you again soon.
