8/10 Very good

We had the cabin on its own with private bathroom for one night and it suited us perfectly! Comfortable beds and opposite the shared kitchen which was very handy. Moved our bench temporarily to the small private garden for breakfast in the sun. Easy walk to the church and shops Highly Recommended if you like good budget overnight stay.
