A wonderful place to stay! The open fireplace with plenty of firewood included was our favourite part! Comfortable beds and plenty of towels supplied. The house was nice clean and we found everything we needed for cooking etc. There were plenty of places nearby to eat and drink also. Overall we absolutely loved the house and really enjoyed our stay. We’re looking forward to our next visit!
