Tondes is a truly special place to stay – an absolute gem of a place. Hosts, Julie and Mark were warmly welcoming and friendly. Julie’s cooking is superb and she uses as much fresh local produce as possible. Much comes directly from their farm, vegetable garden and woodland. The meals were delicious (including a wide vegetarian repertoire) and Julie and Mark were entertaining dinner conversationalists with a wide range of interests and local knowledge. Breakfasts were equally appetising, generous and full of home produce.
Both bedroom and bathroom were very clean, extremely comfortable, spacious and charmingly decorated.
There is a pretty enclosed garden to sit in amongst all the flowers and animal lovers can meet sheep, goats, cats, dogs, rabbits, chickens and ducks on the farm.
Tondes has everything needed for a lovely, relaxing holiday.
We were delighted to be able to stay two nights (Sat. and Sun) with these charming people. We witnessed the milking of sheep, went for walks on quiet country roads and tasted wonderful, natural food in a lovely friendly atmosphere. Our room was spacious and airy, and the only sounds from an open window were of lambs calling to their mothers. Strongly recommended for a taste of the good life.
