Mrs F,

We stayed at the Firs in 2020 and loved it so much that we stayed there again this year. The Firs is a beautiful place, the accommodation is so lovely, everything is finished to a very high standard. Comfortable and very stylish , the owners have thought of everything. They are also very friendly, helpful and laidback. We highly recommend the Firs for a restful holiday.
