The purpose of this holiday was to get away from the stresses and headaches of working life. I can't think of a more perfect place to do that than Rolbaken. The location is amazing. Talk about peaceful! The landscape is breathtakingly beautiful that you end up just staring at it for hours!
Mary and Dick are wonderful hosts who immediately make you feel welcome. You must try Mary's cooking! She is a genius in the kitchen! It was lovely to have breakfast provided and because of the glorious weather, we were able to sit on the veranda taking in the views and enjoying fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereal and a delicious twist on the cooked breakfast!
The Guest House itself is delightful. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. It was great to have a massive bed to myself! Everything that you could possibly need has been provided. I just wish I could have stayed there longer.
Thank you so much, Dick and Mary. You really have worked hard to create a superb Guest House. You both should feel very proud. I look forward to staying again very soon.
