4/5 Good

Very good choice for those en route to the north

Room was comfy and had a lovely view of the mountain, river and northern sky. Access road is 4km of shingle in ok condition. Google maps gives the wrong location (by 20km!) when using a saved offline map, ok when online. Breakfast was very good. Lovely, friendly and un-pushy border collie dog.

Owner was really nice and knowledgeable for almost everything a traveler needed to know. Breakfast is included. The house is cute and we loved to play with those horses in the farm.
