A really freindly welcome and a nice private setting. The pool was perfect for young children and we felt that nothing was too much trouble for the owners. A place full of character in a quiet, rural setting with access to many attractions and beutiful countryside. Canoeing is very much reccommended.
Thanks/ diolch Jim and family, we would love to return.
