4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Loved the peaceful surroundings. It was also lovely to have the complimentary self serve breakfast- especially enjoyed the fresh fruit salad. The host was really nice and gave us helpful information on activities and facilities in the area. Also, the other guests were friendly and atmosphere was very relaxed. We had the use of a very cute cottage - the Anne Hathaway cottage. Everything that we needed had been thought of. Great stay.
