A delightful, refurbished house with everything included for your comfort to make it a memorable stay. Lots of fluffy white towels, soft pillows and crisp linen in the two bedrooms, one with double bed and one with two singles. The kitchen is well equipped to experiment with all the local, seasonal produce.

They are very knowledgeable about... more
