We called up rather randomly from an advert in a brochure a couple of hours beforehand and stayed just one night in 'Emma's Cottage'. What a treat! A truly beautiful place, the warmest of welcomes, service with a smile and the finest food of the holiday. My wife discussed cooking with our hostess (and went away with the recipe and a bottle of dressing!) and we all discussed ostrich farming!
We travel a lot and this place really was very special. Beats our home town (Paris) on every count. Its finding places like this that make for great holiday memories.
