We have just returned from a fantastic week at Aurora (my second stay by the way!!) and can highly recommend it without any reservation. Ann is a wonderful host and her home is superb, ecologically friendly and offering every comfort you can imagine.
It is a great base in which to explore the area and Ann has a book of local information and walks which you are able to use and she goes out of her way to ensure you have everything you need. The breakfasts are wholesome, tasty and set you up for the day and best of all are her delicious flapjacks! The rooms and beautifully decorated, clean and extremely comfortable.
The reviews here speak for themselves with the very odd exception... Holidaying_Gal, you have too much time on your hands! My advice is go and stay, you truly won't be disappointed!
