This is simply unforgettable and delightful. There could be no nicer and more friendly people running this exquisite homestead. Everything about this place was a romantics antique lovers dream, it was like Downton Abbey yet with all the mod cons like hot showers.

What a treasure - a little off the beaten track but well worth the drive off the main road!

My wife and I stayed here in March 2014 and we can't recommend it enough. The hosts do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable. The house and rooms are all Victorian, right dwn to the furnishings. The only downside to this accomodation is that you are well out in the country - something that is both good and... More
