Enjoyed the relaxed country setting, excellent accommodation and good-humoured knowledgeable hosts. The dinner with home grown strawberries and man-fired creme brulee dessert was yummmmmm... Be artsy and check out the mounted photographs, demonstrating a steady hand, shape eye, and touch of soul. Thanks hosts.
