“Hi Sherie! Thank you so much for an absolutely lovely stay!!! Everything was so perfect and the hot tub in the evening was the cherry on top! Our only regret was that our stay was so short and we definitely wished we had booked an extra night! The girls had the chance to see the goats in the morning which made their day (they may have grown up in a city �) and hope we didn’t make too much noise in the morning when we left! Thanks again and would definitely recommend your place:) Jess
