    “Very good”

    A warm welcome would have been appreciated and would have encouraged us to stay longer or book in the future. The location is stunning, just wish we had more time to explore the countryside further. There needs to be more made of local history, since its something you have to discover yourself.
    Where are the WTB or the local history society, or the CCW, if this was Ireland then there would be businesses selling traditional items to remind you of your visit?
