An opportunity to stay in a traditional farm house in a remote and tranquil setting for 8 adults to chill out. The wood burner made all the difference during 3 cold February days.

A lovely property, in a great location. We spent our time exploring the local area and then coming back to a homely property to relax in in front of the fire.
