Spent several days here after a cycling holiday and what a relaxing, peaceful way to unwind. A lovely garden is anchored by three tremendous trees that seem to have personalities of their own! Nothing tops time spent in this lovely spot, whether sunbathing on a cool chaise longue with the adjustable sunscreen for your head, or reading at a table... more

The accommodation was befitting of a location known for the opulent... more
