The studio has sufficient provisions for your stay. It is small and can do with some additional storage space, but this did not affect in any way the comfort, privacy and the enjoyment of the lovely views across the valley. The location allows travelling to many areas in the south, north and further west very easily. The hosts Paul and Dorothy wereRead more very welcoming and helpful. The 2 ring hob is perfect for cooking light meals and the microwave has a conventional oven setting. Hide

The studio was smaller than it appeared in the photos. The hosts Paul and Dorothy were very welcoming and a lovely cream tea was prepared for us. The country setting was delightful with a lovely well thought out patio/seating area.
