Introduction
John and Maria extend a warm welcome to all our guests. We are a two storey 6 bedroom building with all bedrooms situated on the first floor.  Because of the nature of the layout of our house we are unable to install either a lift or stair lift. Therefore, unfortunately we are not suitable for those with impaired mobility (unable to manage stairs).
