We booked to stay for our recent wedding Anniversary. We had wanted to stay for some time and we finally managed it.
The drive to get there was not the best but we ended up not taking a direct route, but it was certainly worth it!
It certainly lived up to our expectations. The hotel it in such a wonderful setting and we were lucky to arrive on a hot sunny day so we certainly saw it at it's best.
The room was very nicely decorated, with a large bathroom. Very comfortable large bed.
We arrived mid-afternoon and we booked to have a garden tour. That was very interesting, and we got to try lots of the herbs that are grown in the garden. The gardeners do an amazing job to keep the grounds so perfect!
We then relaxed whilst having a drink on the terrace to enjoy the beautiful weather. Then before dinner we had a kitchen tour, it was nice to see behind the scenes.
The food was amazing. We opted for the 3 course meal rather than the tasting menu. We then finished off with coffee in the lounge with scrummy chocs.
The next morning after breakfast we walked around some of the grounds before leaving.
We will certainly be returning at some point in the future.
