Usually the cars are ready for collection from 8am once being returned by the previous customer. However, my partner and I were due to do a skydive in... More

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us in one of our comfy guestrooms. We are glad we were able to accommodate your large vehicle on our adjoining property.
