The food is excellent, wasn't expecting such an interesting menu and the setting is beautiful. Breakfast was delicious and well prepared. Staff very friendly and helpful, especially George. The tour of the house was well worth doing as it provided a lot interesting information about the Carricks and the art works and furnishings.

The added bonus of a guided tour and a cool glass of bubbles after a walk thru the rose garden, well kept traditional orchard and walled garden made for a... More
