It's a hidden gem

We arrived late Sunday evening to a fantastic welcome from John and Victoria. John is a mind of information. He can put you in the right place at the right time whatever you want to see or do. The guesthouse is amazing it has been built from reclaimed materials. But simpertheticly put together to contrast with it's surrounding. John is a budding artist his artwork is all round the property. We were there for 5 nights and found different pieces of art every day. John and Victoria go out of there way to make you welcome. They strive to make sure you see and do whatever you have come for. Fantastic people. Fantastic guesthouse. 6 stars in my opinion
