We could only stay the one night, but even so our hosts Jackie and Stephen were so kind and helpful and provided every possible comfort even down to booking the restaurant for us. The garden is so beautiful it truly is the perfect hideaway. The rooms have better facilities than most 5 star hotels and includes little luxuries like homemade shortbread, decanter of port, all kinds of hot and cold drinks including fresh milk! Breakfast is everything you could possibly want and more. While there, I treated myself to some of the lovely Aloe Ferox toiletries that are available in the bathroom but also to buy. We even got our car cleaned! Like some of the other reviews, I would definitely make sure we stayed here again!
