There is a golf course on the grounds and also a walking area... More

We ate in the restaurant on our first evening and have to say the... More

Warm welcome, attentive staff, well maintained and clean, spacious rooms. I have nothing bad to say about our stay here, we couldn't have asked for anything more. The restaurant caters for specialist diets (Gluten-free in this case) without question, something unseen this side of the Irish Sea!!! Though it feels unfair to single one member of staff out, a special... More
