You will be warmly welcomed and impressed!

Robert welcomed us warmly when we arrived - it was absolutely pouring down with rain and he provided a huge umbrella for us to get our bags out of the car and into the house.
His tour of the property was fantastic; he didn't just show us where everything was, and leave us to it, but took the time to find out why we were there, suggesting attractions we should see in the area and giving tips on the best buggy rides to take, the microbrewery bars around Lancaster, where to eat, and so on.
The room itself was amazing. Large, airy and bright in the morning, with plenty of space for our clothes and bits and bobs. The bathroom was lovely and the shower had enough pressure. Everything was very clean but not that sterile-clean that makes you feel like you were in a generic chain hotel.
The breakfasts - home cooked to his own recipes - were very tasty and original, as well as the breakfast conversations, where he'd recount really interesting stories and get everyone involved.
The location was nice, too. While being close to a busy road you didn't hear too much of the passing traffic, and the opposite side backed out onto open fields and farms, which was lovely to see in the morning (I woke up early one morning and went down for a coffee on the front porch and saw the sun rise, as well as smoking on the back porch in the evening and listening to the cows and crickets).
All in all we both had a wonderful time here and we would definitely go back when we come back to the area.
