Verified reviewexcellent

Just what the Dr ordered! A place to stay away from the madding crowds. I asked for a room which was private in order for me to have my own space. What a wonderful surprise, l couldn't have asked for more. Peace, comfort, good food, wonderful bird life, long walks in nature, yet close enough to Sedgefield where i visited friends etc.
