Lovely area. Rooms themselves were comfortable. The kitchen, which we paid extra for was VERY disappointing. Very cramped. Minimally equipped. The deck leading to the kitchen had rotting floorboards.

Very peaceful surroundings with abundant birdlife. Comfortable accommodation. Great for an overnight stay. We went self catering route and the kitchen was well equipped. Small maitenance issues, but nothing that affected our stay.
