"What a wonderful place to charge one's battery after having been on the road for two months. Peace and tranquillity what bliss. The digs (unit) has everything one could think of without going over the top. The hosts are most helpful and more than ready for a good chat and of course the ever watchful Bella minding security and keeping the badgers at bay. All in all a good base on bolt hole to return to as the end of a hard day's yakka."
