Client comments and reviews

Open QuoteWe very much enjoyed our stay here and the staff were extremely nice and welcoming. Food was good, varied and all home cooked. We had great fun riding and “rustling” the cattle-sadly D lost the herd at the crucial moment! Pool was a bit cool and mostly shallow. The only real bugbear was no internet [phone signal dodgy].Close Quote - GW (October 2013)
