What an amazing place! We were welcomed with a glass of cold wine after a long drive, and got a beautiful rose suite which was huge, had two bedrooms and a fireplace. The house is beautifully located in a quiet street with two gardens. It has a morning room with chairs and books, for a relaxing start of your day... More

It was a delight to stay here.We were in the Rose suite which was very spacious and beautifully furnished. The breakfasts were excellent and the early evening welcome drinks and nibbles were a very nice touch.Our hosts Ron and Eleanor were very helpful particularly when we had trouble with our hire car.

I recently stayed with 2 friends in the Rose Suite. Every aspect of our stay was excellent. We appreciated the dinner reservations being made for us, the sightseeing tips, and the loan of a CD for touring the cemetery.
