The owners Jennie and Graham could... More

We stayed here in May and were so impressed that we stayed an extra night. Our room at the top was so pretty and the view of the river and the beautiful garden topped it off. The staff were very attentive and the food was scrumptious and plentiful. Thank you for a lovely break.

We had a mini break here just after Easter. We were wonderfully welcomed and looked after by our hosts. The house runs amazingly smoothly. The house is elegant and filled with artefacts and paintings which evoke times past. Breakfasts are extensive: I almost ate a whole one! Meals were accompanied by popular classical music. As others have mentioned it is... More
