Can't add a lot to my previous review. Shirley is an excellent, welcoming, but not too intrusive host. The place itself is unique, a large chateau in huge grounds. Sit and have breakfast in a wonderful old drawing room in front of a window overlooking the lake and grounds - something special and really quite idyllic. If you are passing this way, you really must pay a visit.
