9.5 / 10 Slla & Rob Stroud 22 June, 2011

The gote owner was very welcoming even making us a pot of tea when we arrived. The property was compact and clean and just right for two of us. Any questions or problems were helpfully answered and the animals and children made it all very homely. We had a lovely time despite the weather and would highly recommend it.
