      This is a wonderful space, well thought out, and in a beautiful location! It stays nice and warm inside, everything you need is provided (even a cafetiere so you don't need to resort to instant coffee), and Katy and family are so friendly, welcoming, and knowledgeable. We had a lovely time on our short stay, I only wish we could have stayed for longer! Don't miss your opportunity to holiday here!
