A place to truly relax…

Peace, tranquillity, nature at its best. From the first time we walked down the path to the last we were very happy with our choice. A place to truly relax. We spent most evenings sitting by the lake just taking it all in. Lucie got to see swans flying for the first time! Darren got to be all macho and make a fire. Heather got to feed a duck – up close and personal we will miss our little friends.

Thank you for these opportunities, we hope to visit again soon.
