My husband and I were greeted by Mary and Andrew with open arms and heartfelt smiles. Andrew took our luggage and we were welcomed into their home. Sandhill House stands on the most beautiful grounds with stunning views. We were lucky enough to sit and watch a woodpecker busy working in a tree as we sat beneath. Our room was grand and spacious, under floor heating in our en-suite bathroom was a lovely touch. We chatted together like old friends, while having the privilege of a tour around their beautiful 16th century manor and gardens. Breakfast at Sandhill House was cooked to order, we were ensured that all produce is locally sourced, fairtrade where possible free range and organic. Superb. The apple juice from Mary and Andrews orchard is a must try! We would love to return to Sandhill House in the not too distant future.
