Our family spent close to a week at this idyllic property in May 2014 and our hosts John and Teresa couldn't have been more accommodating. Ideal accommodation for family groups with 7 large bedrooms all with own facilities and plenty of privacy. Had planned to have dinner and breakfast on our first night due to arrival times, but the breakfast was so good it became a regular morning mainstay. The two dinners we enjoyed were wonderful too, so much so, that the self catering option was soon put to bed despite the large and fully equiped kitchen/dining rooms. Highly recommended.
