You couldn’t ask for better hosts

You couldn’t ask for better hosts – they made us feel like part of the family. The facilities were spacious and clean. For evening meals we travelled to local towns mainly about 15 minutes away. We would certainly pick this again.

Excellent place to stay

Felt very welcome and the prior engagement with Tatjana was excellent. Dropped us off and picked us up from our wedding so that was a real plus. Excellent place to stay.
