    My stay with Marie & Tom was lovely. They were very helpful & friendly and couldn’t do more for you.
    The house is lovely & very homely. It is also in a great location & close to bus routes.

    Mir hat es bei Mary und Tom sehr gut gefallen. Sie waren sehr führsorglich und haben mir mit allem geholfen. Das tägliche Frühstsück war zufriedenstellend und die Umgebung war sicher! ich hatte nur 10 Minuten mit dem Bus zu meiner Arbeit, was sehr enstpannend war. Tom und Mary sind wirklich liebevolle Gastgeber und deren Hunde sind lieb.

    Ich hatte eine sehr positive und schöne Zeit bei Ihnen!
