Helen and John were very welcoming. After settling in, we sat in the courtyard appreciating the location and weather, when we were offerred a glass of wine. A nice touch. Despite believing we had booked dinner in earlier correspondence, we had failed to do so. This presented no problem to our hosts who provided a wonderful meal at short notice. The bedroom was beautiful and very large. All in all a wonderful albeit brief one night stay. Highly recommended.
