The photos don't do justice to how lovely the place is, but I suppose the hosts make the big difference with their warmth and willingness to accommodate all my special requests! I loved the room which had everything I could possibly have needed, lovely bedding and towels and the extra few touches made it very comfortable. The setting was really pretty in the apple orchards, lovely and quiet and the house itself is clearly a labour of love with many, many hours/months of very hard work to restore. The breakfast was delicious with a very good choice - even for my dietary requirements. Only problem was that we didn't stay longer... but will do next time.
