Absolute gem! ☺ Beutiful location. Breathtaking views. Nice and quiet. Food was absolutely fabulous. Welcome snacks and drinks a very nice touch. Great location for wherever you want to explore on the meander. The best we have been to on the meander. I'm scared word will get out what a great place it is and then we'll never get a booking again! ☹ Cannot think of a single thing that wasn't to my liking.
