Great place to stay. The accommodation was very nice, spacious and comfortable. The views were lovely nice calm and relaxed. The hot tub is a big plus as you can relax and get a well earned rest without any interruptions. It was a short drive to the nearest village but it caters for your needs as in good pub, food and cafes. Along with some little shops.
