1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The wonderful hospitable hosts Fiona and Gareth did everything to make sure we had a lovely holiday. The beautiful building, and huge swimmingpool, the wonderful meals and the other guests have also contributed to making us feel at home right away. We did some marvelous maintain biking and road biking tours.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The 30k mountain bike ride that took in parts of the local scenery that would have remained unseen without the guidance and assistance of our host.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

For full flexibility hire a car.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Not especially although the riding stables did do well out of the visitors.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

A great holiday and well worth considering for a return. The hosts accommodate families that want to be off the beaten track just as well as cycling or other sport enthusiasts.
