A very comfortable modern family home with beautiful gardens. Our hosts John & Ruth greeted us on our arrival with tea and biscuits served in the lounge. A very welcome start to our stay with them for two nights. Our bedroom with views to the gardens and swimming pool was spacious with an extremely comfortable bed and ensuite bathroom. The excellent breakfast choices were delicious and as we were the only guests we were also able to enjoy the company of our easy going hosts. Their advice and recommendations on things to do and choice of restaurants to visit added to our five star stay with them. They even included a very drinkable bottle of wine on the tray with the tea & coffee facilities.
