Comments:
Christine was very prompt with communication and we immediately felt at home when we arrived. She greeted us by the gate and showed us to an annex on part of their main home. The facilities were excellent with our own sitting room, bathroom and small kitchen area with microwave, fridge and kettle etc.
Travelling in a small campervan it was great to have space to store all our things.
“We ordered our continental breakfast for the morning and followed Clive’s instructions to order most of it. Stewed plums were a highlight. There were also some really thoughtful touches with a mini nibbles plate in the fridge with cheese and jams, plus some chocolate roses (and real freshly picked roses in the bedroom).”
