    The owners were very helpful with suggestions for evening meals, places to visit etc. Both were very knowledgable about the local area. Great to see they promote the local ecology and proud of their eco achievements to date. Excellent to see they provide for EVs of all types also.
    A lovely place which we will happily visit again and recommend to others.
