This is the second time we have been and it wont be the last, it is quiet apart from the fish jumping in the pond, birds and distant baying of the donkeys. It is clean ,tidy and well equipped and the welcome crate was lovely. It is certainly a place to recharge your body batteries ready for the rest of the year.
