It was a privilege for us to stay at Honister House and be hosted by Ged and Carol for five unforgettable nights in early July, 2016.

My wife and myself spent a most enjoyable week with Ged and Carol at Honister House. The room was well appointed and comfortable and the the different cakes provided each day were delicious. The breakfast menu was extensive and freshly cooked to order. Their hospitality was first class. Cannot recommend highly enough.
