A most wonderful experience! This place is indeed perfect for two and so comfortable and convenient. The bathroom design is fantastic. We played records, watched the apple TV, lolled in the comfy bed with cups of tea and strolled in the gardens, delighted in the breakfast and had the best sleep ever. Thank you for having such great ideas for accommodation and hospitality. We would love to come back and stay in all the pieces of the collection.
