Our stay for the second year has been equal to our first. Everything was just perfect with Paul,Cheryl and all the staff making us so at home. Even took my slippers this year for that is how relaxed we felt! Look forward to a longer stay in 2017.

My wife and I stayed here for four nights. We were enthusiastically greeted on arrival, given a quick tour of the house (important to know where food and drink can be found!) and shown to our room (to which a very welcome pot of tea was delivered soon after), which ticked all the boxes for us. En suite, comfortable bed,...

From our first arrival to our departure we were made to feel like old friends. The Hotel was first class in all respects, although we are unable to comment on the evening meals as we ate elsewhere. The breakfasts were first class though. The only minor problem was a fault with our shower (the temperature was very difficult to control)....

The hotel was extremely comfortable and well appointed and the owners, Paul and Cheryl, could not have been more welcoming or helpful. We had dinner every night as well as breakfast and the food was excellent - well prepared and varied.
