We throughly enjoyed our stay at 'The Owl'. It is a beautiful old house that has been well restored with a fully equipped kitchen. The pool and BBQ area are superb. the owner was very friendly and welcoming. If I had to try to pick holes I would say that the bed sheets could have been better quality, But hey if that's the the worst I can find then we obviously didn't have any problems. We would come back again and would have no hesitation in recommending 'The Owl' to friends..
