Carl and Sharon are great hosts. Stopped for 6 day and couldn't have been better, would recommend to anyone. Ask about places to eat on a night and Sharon will suggest some fantastic places. Thanks for an enjoyable break.

My wife and I arrived on 29th August for a 4 night stay. Our room was spotless and the bed was really comfortable. At breakfast you had a choice of fruit, cereals or the wonderful cooked breakfast. Sharon and Carl are wonderful people who made our stay welcoming and enjoyable. We will definitely stay again. Angela and Martin
