The accommodation was even better than we had read about and expected. A haven of comfort with so much provided. Teas, coffees (real coffee too), breads, spreads, juices and cereals. The furnishings were comfortable and fresh. Took time to...

An oasis after a very long drive. Rose and Alex were friendly but unobtrusive and their place is great. The kids didn't want to leave...in fact, they didn't want to leave the pool! Clean and tidy, along with the unique underground experience. Fantastic!
