I have captured some of the natural beauty of the estate on Flickr - http://www.flickr.com/photos/8379517@N04/sets/72157632326179493/with/8302902047/ but really doesn't do full justice to how beautiful the place is.
As with any home stay, the cottages were spartan but clean. But for one massive spider, everything was just right. The Missus took care of the spider while I cowered in fear. Other than that (and the subsequent tongue lashing) everything was just right!
