We loved our two night stay at Ros Hill Estate. We were in town for a Saturday wedding that took place in their lovely garden. The hosts were very accommodating to us and our two well behaved children, ages 8 and 10. We reserved two rooms at the back of the house, the kids room had two twin beds and our room was actually two with a king bed in one and a queen in the adjoining room and shared a very large hallway bathroom with them. Our bed was so comfortable, I didn't wake up once. There is air conditioning and also a fan in the room. The price was reasonable considering all the space we had, the delicious homemade breakfasts, the huge yard that the kids enjoyed exploring, and the gorgeous old house.
We could walk to the downtown shops but it felt like it's own far-away oasis.
See my photos. I had such fun checking out the entire house. This is a fabulous place for a wedding with so many versatile indoor and outdoor options.
