    Stayed here for 2 nights. Arrived very late because of storms. Was made very welcome despite the hour a meal was provided. The tour of the battle fields was incredibly moving and informative. Nothing was too much trouble. You are in the sun for hours...More

    Casual, light clothes plus can't nifty shoe shoes. Swimsuit and a jacket as the weather is pretty changeable at this time of the year, and it can be chilly in the mornings and evenings. Oh and don't forget a hat!
