We stayed as a group of 6 in one of the outhouses. We had paid a preimum price for the weekend, certainly more than for a bog standard b&b and so we were expecting the most top class quality experience.
Overall we had an enjoyable stay, outhouse was nicely furnished and kitted out. Nice touch was a courtesy selection of alcholic and soft drinks and basic provisions.
However the place was not spotless in terms of cleanliness. Also 1 toilet serving six people was not the easiest experience.
Breakfast was hosted in a very impressive dining room with a long table along the centre. Rather bizarrely we were asked to sit along one side of the table, as there was another group also staying at the same time. It made sense to sit as a group at either end of the table and when asked if we could do so were told this was not possible and we had to sit in the line ?! This was not the expected response and dampended the experience a little. Breakfast choice of fried english breakfast was only average unfortunately.
So overall, given the price paid experience was good (but not very good) - next time I think we would probably try somewhere else.
