We had a wonderful time at Polraen, with Martin and Gill. They are incredibly welcoming hosts, and it seemed like nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was excellent and often accompanied by Martin's highly entertaining, whimsical observations on life, the universe -- well anything really! The location was superb and enhanced by the depth of Martin and...

This was our second stay at Polraen, the first in the early summer of 2012. This year we arrived for Easter and with the news of the floods we arrived with our concerns but these were unfounded, with our stay and travelling in no way impeded or hindered by the previously poor weather.
