The breakfast was amazing. Lovely friendly hosts. Beautiful, comfortable accommodation, we just got very cold at night.

My sister and I spent a wonderful weekend in the cozy Thatch Roof House. It was such a treat, and we really felt at home. The rooms are tastefully decorated, and the beds are so comfortable. But more than that, the staff are wonderfully friendly, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would recommend it to anyone! Can't wait to come back.
