Rated 4 out of 5 by from Our hosts were very kind and helpful. It was a shame we didn't have more time to enjoy the place or get better acquainted. It was a little tricky with the dogs in a fairly small space, luckily for us we had the guest area to ourselves on this occasion, I felt like a grot when leaving travelling gear about the place as it was set up so nicely, it seemed wrong to spoil it. But Kym and Serena couldn't have been more helpful.
