Really loved our stay here- the property is so full of character, yet has every modern comfort one could expect. The hot tub was lovely even in the snowy weather we had, especially on a clear, dark night- so many stars visible. One thing to note: when we stayed there were no bathrobes or towels supplied for getting to and from the hot tub (we used Read morethe spare towels from the second bedroom as there were only 2 of us). Worth checking with the owner before you set off if you need to pack them! Hide
