Ardeen House is a handsome building in a quiet corner of Ramelton looking towards the river. There was a beautiful arrangement of sweet-smelling lilies to greet us in the hall, and Anne and Bert Campbell gave us a lovely warm welcome with tea and home-made cakes in front of a roaring fire. Just what we needed after a long drive.
Our bedroom was large with very comfortable beds. Anne had knitted the bedspreads in our room, and had made patchwork quilts for some of the others. She is a great knitter,and also a champion brige playeer.
The breakfasts were delicious - lots of choice and everything looking attractive served in Nicolas Mosse pottery in the elegant dining room.
We could treat the sitting room as our own, and there was always a fire burning when we arrived after a day's walking - and of course, tea.
We made our own picnics each day and Anne filled our thermos flasks with tea or coffee.
The last morning she drove us to Letterkenny to catch our bus to Belfast - leaving Bert to cook breakfast for the other guests - even though she was going to Portugal the next day and had a lot to do.
