We stayed here for four nights on our mini-moon and it was perfect location. With three dogs to keep an eye on the fact that the garden is enclosed is a godsend. The cabin itself is cosy but, even with three large dogs, plenty spacious enough for us. Beautiful view over the fields and lovely hosts. Will definitely be coming back
