  • “Vanessa and her husband are amazing hosts, and the house is just lovely. The breakfast was superb and the food is so fresh. The eggs, milk, honey, and tomatoes were right from the farm. The jams and yoghurts are homemade and delicious. I tried them all. The lambs were a riot. If you want to get away from everything and relax, this is the place to be.

  • “My sister and I spent a couple of days at Vanessa’s cottage. It was magnificent! Accommodation was comfortable, views amazing and Vanessa’s breakfasts one of a kind! Your different breads on offer each morning were wonderful. Your advice on local haunts helped a lot and we loved the visit to your “family” on our last morning. Thank you, Vanessa!”
