              Had an awesome stay. Peaceful surroundings. Friendly staff. Was just wondering why on the first night only the fireplace was lit and sufficient wood was supplied to keep it going. And the next two nights we couldn't light the remaining 3 logs because we had nothing to get it going with. We arrived at 1am on Sunday morning and it was freezing. For the rest of our stay everything was perfect. The food is delicious and of excellent quality. Thank you!
