Hidden gem - “Over the Moon”.
What a surprise!! We had a lovely cottage bungalow which had everything you required and overlooked a beautiful garden. Our hosts Rob and Lionel were fantastic - we were greeted with such warmth from Rob, who suggested several sites for us to visit and looked after us so well.
