Out stay at Wiss House exceeded all my expectations. We were greeted with beautiful Devonshire tea of warm scones straight out of the oven and a lovely pot of tea in beautiful China cups on arrival which our boys of 11 and 14 had never experienced before. Our rooms were lovely and cosy with gorgeous 4 poster beds, and the... More

We also booked dinner. Sara is a great cook and we left the menu up to her. There is nothing we would have changed,it was excellent. Will recommend it to friends. We also had many questions about the history of the house plus places to visit in the area.

Beautiful heritage listed house with a fascinating history and wonderfully decorated by host Sara. To make the most of your stay book a place at the period dining table, settle down to one of Sara's scrumptious three course dinners and soak in the atmosphere. Afternoon tea on the verandah is also a treat. We stayed in the Lionel Suite, complete... More

Wiss house is a beautiful home in a pretty little town. We stayed 2 nights with Sara and don't have a bad thing to say. The room was large and comfortable, the food amazing and fresh and the host friendly and knowledgeable about the area. I highly recommend a stay at Wiss House, we left feeling relaxed and happy.

Afternoon tea on arrival was a blueberry & white chocolate cake for 2 with candles (husband's birthday) and a proper pot of delicious tea.

We stayed at Wiss House for one evening, and it was gorgeous! Sara was an attentive host, and we greatly enjoyed the gourmet 3 course dinner and breakfast she provided. The location is easy to find, the pool is refreshing, and the house is just beautiful. We were so relaxed and refreshed after visiting Wiss House!
