You will get a warm welcome in Dangan Manor. I love cooking and try to use as much local produce as possible. I love nature and being outdoors hence living on a working farm and being married to a sheep farmer, horse trainer and keeper of 4 red hens. I am a very hospitable host, blessed with the gift of the gab!
