Having read about the property in a number of design articles I was curious as to wether it would meet the lofty expectations I had built for it. Honestly, it blew me away. The place is designed in a way that instantly makes you feel calmed. From the expanse that is the entry doors (completely slide away creating a wall free entry point) to the height of the ceilings (i'm guessing around 4M at the Northern edge of the rooms) to the delicious concrete bench, the place begs of you to sit and relax. The beds, well, wow. They make it near impossible to get out of the rooms. They're that good.
The weekend we were there it was miserable weather but this just gave us an excuse to laze about by the fire and take in the scenery. I could spend days upon days sitting and watching the world framed through this place.
Being the one who booked it I was worried about the opinions of the friends I was travelling with, but they were blown away by it as well. It's a really, really nice place.
The wine and choc biscuits were a welcome surprise too. Great touch!
