    “Very good. Friendly, excellent breakfast.”

    We thouruoghly enjoyed our long weekend stay. We were given excellent local knowledge from our friendly host to improve our stay. The accomodation was comfortable and the food was great - the owner being flexible at short notice to our differing breakfast needs. Even another visiting couple, who were clearly having serious domestic problems, did not inconvenience us in this spacious building. We will look to visiting again.
