Oh my the staff here are amazing. We are vegan and they made us fresh vegan samosas daily and vegan veg stir fry for dinner. They completely went above and beyond to accommodate us, even venturing out to buy soy milk for us. The only issue we had was in our cottage. Overall it was wonderful but the shower had a leak and the flooring was soggy. If the owners of this property could properly fix the shower I’d give this a 5 star.
