  • There’s a store in the B&B where you can buy everything from daily farm fresh eggs, local honey and herbs and artwork, and furniture lovingly made by the owner Michael and local artist friends.

  • They offer retreats combining elements of food, art and nature. Take an "education vacation"!

  • The Cockerels will wake you up…take ear plugs.
