This converted farm building offers great accommodation in large rooms around a courtyard. We were met by a very friendly young man who showed us to our enormous room. It was decorated with antique style furniture and had a superb bathroom. The only thing missing was a fridge for drinks and safe, which I have become used to. The restaurant was in a large converted barn and looked as if it would hold a great wedding reception. The breakfast tables were in one corner, and the food served in the old kitchen. The food was amazing. Lovely croissants, with various fillings, excellent coffee, homemade preserves, meats and cheeses. Yummy food.
We did not have a window at eye level in our room, so get some view we went to sit in the courtyard. Only one small table and chairs were there. I think they are missing a trick or two by not have a bar area outside the restaurant. I got the impression the place is struggling, but I got that impression all over The island in these economic times. Good luck to this venture, it deserves to thrive. I recommend to all.
