We spent three days here, and we loved it. Very clean, small room, but everything was great. Had a play area for kids, a stream, a ping pong room, and the hosts (Kitty especially) were so generous and congenial. They gave us several excellent recommendations and all turned out to be spot on. They also have a very lovely pool... More

The room downstairs was open plan with a bed in the wall. The bed was okay, not the most comfortable. The two floors only had one fan heater... More

We booked a room with a private outdoor hot tub with plenty of steaming hot water. We capped off each day with a soak. Not only was the room lovely, but the front... More

We were greeted with friendliness and courtesy. Nothing was too much trouble. Facilities explained and information re nearby walks for us and our pooch Paddy were offered without even having to enquire. The facilities were clean and comfortable and the spa was a great place to unwind.
