We spent three peaceful days here and had a very enjoyable stay. There's a good cold breakfast buffet, small but frequently topped up. The two lounges are very comfortably furnished and have a good WiFi signal. The smaller lounge has a large TV, the larger is good for reading or chatting. Our bedroom was a good size, with a good...

The garden is well attended and has an abundance of... More

What a lovely place to start your holiday. Nice room with great view. Good beds. Breakfast was fine. Very clean. The house is lovely decorated. The owner is a good host and makes you feel very welcome. One feels very relaxed when sitting in a cosy armchair, drinking fine Madeira wine, looking at the fireplace.
