We had a lovely stay here, it felt very welcoming from the moment we arrived and Linda was the perfect host. Breakfast was delicious, rooms and bathroom super clean. It was nice to have the little personal touches to relax at the end of our holiday, such as flowers in our room, chocolates and warm conversation.
