The shops were...

glad to see that over the years the landscaping has been developed, and I have to say they have a lovely Victorian garden. We had room 322, which was a garden suite. It was very quiet, and we enjoyed our private porch that was surrounded by greenery. It was a bit of a challenge getting the doors open, as they...
