Family suite: Comfortable beds and quality duvets. Pillows too soft but I'm in the minority on my pillow choices. Plenty of space in room. Mix of modern appliances/furnishings and older dated furniture, however current owners only been in a few months and improvements constantly being made. Wonderful little touches like sweets and pop for the kids raises the bar on... More

The place has been taken over recently and is so much cleaner than it used to be. One of the rooms has been refurbished to high standard and the rest of the property will be refurbished over...
