A delightful place to stay. Sarah and Andreas were most helpful, especially Sarah who had to send on our passports we had foolishly left in our safe and then refused to be repaid for the cost of the courier. What a relief to get them back!

We had an amazing stay at the country house as part of our honeymoon. The hotel is very nicely decorated, with beautiful gardens and surroundings. The staff at Dune Ridge has also been really welcoming throughout our stay, and the food was delicious. I would 100% recommend this place.
