The bedroom was very comfortable with a large shower. Claire and Chris were very welcoming and keep an immaculate property. The breakfast was good with - rare in a B& B - excellent coffee. I was very impressed that Chris described the menu in German to a couple of German guests - really thoughtful. I would definitely recommend this place

I was made very welcome by Chris and Claire and shown to my twin-bedded room. It was very spacious and had a sofa as well as a bath. Everything was clean and fresh,... More
