                  Good welcome, great dogs, very clean and well maintained. Cooked breakfast sparse, plenty of toast and cereal plus coffee.

                  Booked here on a whim, not expecting much, and was blown away! Had a fantastic stay for three nights, good breakfast in the mornings, nicely decorated place; but the best parts were the gorgeous well cared for garden (including pool) and friendly hosts. Decent room with all the expected amenities; comfortable bed and spacious bathroom. Highly recommended!
