Central to town centre and dining venue. Needed to get an early night for early flight next day bit of a problem as venue bit noisy. Able to hear other guests coming and going from rooms banging of doors

On arrival warm welcome of unit and property then hot baked bread arrived and the cheese platter for supper great food for breakfast generous allowance of food. Close to local pub (2 minute walk ) and (5min drive to centre of town) beautiful property to wal around and the rooms were outstanding. The most reliable holiday ever. Thanks for spoiling us. Long spa of a night and showers in the morning. Oh such a comfortable bed. Wonderful break
