The property is generally lovely with everything we needed. However it adjoins the owner's house and their radio could be heard sometimes through the wall. There are no doors downstairs so no way to stop the noise travelling. The lights are on automatic which is OK unless you get up at night, when the lights stay on for longer than needed and cannoRead moret be turned off. Hide

The beds were incredibly comfortable and the bathrooms spacious and well equipped. Downstairs was gorgeous, modern kitchen and vintage living room. The whole property oozed character and the surrounding countryside was wonderful. The owners were charming and his cooking was a dream. We would like to return sometime in the future.
