Guestbook comments from the owner

It's our 4th visit and the kids LOVE it. Just a brilliant holiday for all of us.

So much freedom, fresh air and space to enjoy. Walks in the woods, tennis court, the pet sheep and our kids playing with Hannah and her puppy. Superb.

We stayed in an apartment to attend a family wedding nearby. We'll definately be back. it was truly relaxing after the excitement of the day - comfy beds, nice facilities and great views. Thank you, Ron and Ritsuko
