After driving for several hours on a warm summers day from london, it would have been happy to stay in a hay barn with cold running tap. We arrived up a winding lane to outside of an 18th century building; beautiful in its fauna and flora and regional dry stone walls. The drive come car park was busy with parked vehicles but we were happy to park on the street, remembering to place vehicle into park, set hand brake and face wheels into kerb. You get the idea of the incline. The reception is modern; freindly and inviting with the house cat which greeted us as we entered. We are shown to our rooms which are unfortunately on the first floor with no lift. The corridors are small and appear to be in a process of being upgraded. My room 16 is bright, clean, modern but warm. I overlook the bay over local roof tops (look out for the chimney owl very - common locally) My window was left open alnight and lead to a very pleasant nights sleep in a very comfortable bed. Bathroom lets them down but I could only imagine it awaits an upgrade. Breakfast was delicious; well presented and with a large variety of local produce. The terrace was a nice added feature overlooking a small but adequate pool. All in all a lovely stay and yes I would happily return.
