We were greeted by two lovely owners of the property and were introduced into our room. A gesture only proud owners would make. Breakfast was excellent, served again with politeness and pride. I will most definitely stay here again.

We stayed for 4 nights as a base for visiting the surrounding area. There was nothing to find fault with. From the friendly welcome by Tim and Jan, the very comfortable room, the excellent breakfast options, and all the local amenities.
