Breakfasts were an obvious highlight, so imaginative & very delicious - efficiently served by Libby who's also extremely friendly. When we returned each evening,... More

Conveniently located, we enjoyed the quiet and very pleasant hospitality. The quality of the room, the bath and the other facilities are outstanding, WiFi Speed perfectly adequate. The house has a continuous style and is furnished with particularly good taste. If this sounds now too positive, try it yourself. The only danger is, that you do not lose weight because... More

Nice touches like tea and cake on arrival, recommending and booking a restaurant and homemade fudge as we left. If I were nit picking, it would be to ask for fresh towels daily or at least to...
