I was amazed to see they have a zoo next door and a museum it was an awesome bonus. The owners were happy to talk about future developments and I’m going back some day, the location was great.”

Mathilde, Aus

Considering the price we excepted something basic at best, but this cottage was so cosy and cute, with the fire in the living room, and it was the best morning ever with animals, sun and lovely staff
