5/5 Excellent

The location is great, and the dogs were the highlight- coming to the door to say hello every morning! The owners were very keen to sort issues, and we were given the privacy we wanted. Rooms are spacious and would be a wonderful summertime stay, although we enjoyed it even at this time of year!
