Dawn and Neil's place is fantastic. Modern, comfortable and HUGE bedrooms for a great nights sleep. All the touches like the coffee machine, milk, bread, jams etc really make a difference. But the star of the show is the patio overlooking the hinterland. Breathtaking. Dawn and Neil are wonderful hosts as well - so welcoming and friendly but happy to give privacy if that's what you prefer . can't recommend this place highly enough.
