We were delighted with the accomodation and the communication. Very handy for lots of places we wanted to visit. Sadly the weather was grim but we just got on with it and made every minute count. Spacious and comfortable, nice welcome and we will certainly book again. After months of Covid controls we so needed a couple of days away as we all do.
