This was a fantastic place for our little getaway.
The property was really nice and had everything we needed. The kids loved it as it looked like a hobbit house……so did we, our own little slice of the shire.
The views are stunning and it’s so peaceful, spent the evenings around the fire pit toasting marshmallows and star gazing. Lovely family break and we’ll definitely be back.
