Immaculate service!!! We had such a lovely stay at this place, we didn't want to leave. Gordon and his wife made us feel so much at home. The attention to detail was incredible, the food was also very delicious. We loved it. Thank you and keep it up. We will definitely be back.

Enjoyed our overnight stay, arrived early to a lovely greeting, we could sit outside in the sun or under cover, went for a walk past the brook and into the forest. Breakfast was excellent, as we are Banting our hostess paid special attention and made our breakfast an excellent one. Rested, slept, ate and departed happy.

Anybody wanting a quiet weekend away with no fuss - this is the place to go. Booking was easy, Gordon and Morag accommodated our needs. We even got an SMS to travel safely. Rooms were superb, comfortable and spotless. Breakfast was delicious and we especially enjoyed the homely feel. we most definitely will be back.

A very pleasant stay in quiet location, clean facilities and excellent hosts. Great attention to detail with nothing spared The botanical gardens are nearby and made for an enjoyable evening walk. We will be back. Richard and Tom Kirkland
