Just lovely to be back in the Studio again! Very cosy despite being February and even braved a coffee outside looking at the snowdrops. Colin and Fiona are very hospitable, nothing too much trouble. Looking forward to another visit.

Management response:

Thanks so much for reviewing us. We much look forward to your next visit. Best wishes. Fiona
