​”​Rita has great skill and a wealth of experience in offering shiatsu massage.  Shiatsu is non- invasive treatment with many practical benefits, it relieves stress and tension along with all sorts of aches and pains and digestive problems. I always enjoy the luxury of a treatment with Rita which relaxes and balances body and mind, bringing me a deep feeling of calm and well-being.”
Chris Whiteside

“You have created a home away from home. You don’t just look after your guests, you care for them and it has felt like I’ve spent the weekend in a good friend’s house. Thanks for the fab breakfast, the chats, the advice, the wine, the massage, the homemade elderflower juice, and a wonderful experience. I’ll most definitely be back”
