‘It was a welcome treat to see the cafe located opposite the reception area at the village. I have to say that the coffee was excellent, given the remote location of this centre. Seated by the infinity pool overlooking the village lake, it was a pleasant respite after the drive in…” James B, Tripadvisor.
