    The Keep is a unique and wonderful place to stay. Carol and Mike are very caring and attentive without being intrusive. Location is brilliant. Five Star cleanliness/atmosphere/facilities/location/hosts/memories! Breakfast each day was wonderful. Wish we could have stayed longer. I shall always treasure our stay here.
