“Peaceful relaxing stay, pet and disabled friendly.”

Reviewed 7 Oct 2020

We arrived when Ian was out of the country and no one was staying in the main house either so it was very quiet and quite eerie especially at night when letting out dog out because the external light was not working. That aside the only other issue was the difficulty in locking the patio door. We had a great time just roaming around the local countryside and exploring the garden. Despite being overseas on a different time zone Ian was very supportive and responded quickly.
