Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Staff & service
It was in a beautiful location! However there was not much communication between the staff and myself. I had emailed about their additional services and never heard back, I checked in at 4:30 (online it said check in started at 4) and they had already left the property, so I was left alone with a note and no real description about how I could use the living room space and wood fire. It is a lovely place just a bit lonely to see no one during your entire stay and have no one else staying at the property for the night.

The garden and property are so lovely. Enjoyed the cozy little dining cabin that's well stocked with yogurts, butter. milk etc. If you like to cook the kitchen is top notch. Its a self sustaining property with restaurants/stores about 20 mins away, best to bring things for meals & snacks if you plan to eat/prepare meals in.

What a gem! If you like to be off the beaten path, in a quiet peaceful environment, this is for you. The room was spotless, bed very comfortable and egg breakfast in cute dining hut was great. Took a nice hike right from the property.
