"Just what the doctor ordered !"

We needed somewhere comfortable to get away from it all, a place for the kids to roam and at the same time a place that had nearby places of interest. This ticked all the boxes. We all came away feeling like we had had a proper holiday. The owners are very friendly and seem to have a very chilled approach to life. We will definitely visit again in the not too distant future.
