My sister and I loved the decor, luxury and beauty of the Guesthouse, the ease of finding it and the overall tranquility of the area, it's nice to unplug from reality for a short while and just immerse oneself with the surrounding nature. We do plan on returning to the Country Guesthouse in the summer for a longer period, to... More

We enjoyed an amazing family reunion and 80th birthday celebration. The Country Guest House was perfect. We all got to stay together. The staff, service and food was excellent. A little bit of maintenance is required in the manor house, but did not spoil our celebration. What a beautiful setting. Thank you.

Unit had a lounge, bedroom and bathroom, all VERY Spacious, clean and tidy. I would suggest paying some more attention to... More
