Come in the spring when the young foals can be seen everywhere, sit in the shade of the forest or on the cliff tops in the summer sun. In the Autumn come and see the splendour of the autumn colours, and in winter the forest is a magical place and there are so many attractions and museums to visit and you will find all the details in your cottage.
