Diane and Barry, the owners, go to every effort and beyond to make guests comfortable. Their sparkling clean home looks over a wonderful garden and sheep pasture and there are windows at every junction to take in the light and views. Diane and Barry gather guests together in the evening to enjoy "nibbles" and wine and to visit and exchange ideas. There is a choice of breakfasts in the morning and Diane makes sure that each guest has a pitcher of lemon/mint water at nighttime and a taste of bedtime chocolate. They are outgoing and friendly, more than willing to make telephone calls on their guests behalf.
Barry is an excellent fishing guide and we highly recommend his services. His local knowledge gets the fisherman into areas that the average fisherman wouldn't know about.
If you are in this area, then you will be amiss not to stay here.
