Kate met us when we arrived and was lovely, offering fresh baked bread for breakfast the next day. The unit was very clean and bright and nicely placed for our travels.

A very well situated and very well provisioned property. The fresh bread in the morning was the icing on the cake.

Jay and Kate were great hosts and couldn't be more helpful! They have amazing gardens where they grow fresh fruit, which they kindly shared with us. The place was very spacious and comfortable. We would highly recommend them!
