Interaction with guests
We live in the farmhouse across the courtyard from the cottage, however our entrances are on different sides of the yard so the cottage is very private. We will be there to meet you and show you around the cottage and are available if you need anything during your stay.

The cottage was comfortable and cosy, and had everything we needed. It's well situated for exploring the surrounding area but we just snuggled down and had a lazy weekend. Caroline is a warm and welcoming host. We will definitely be back again soon!
