I stayed at Ross House in 2010 and feel I want to add my impression after reading some negative comments. I had a great time and would go back anytime. I had a warm welcome and enjoyed the a peaceful night in an airy room which led out into the courtyard. Walking round the yard I was able to get up close to the horses and it didn't seem a bother for the young man working to answer my many questions. Breakfast was a feast and since I don't drive a taxi was sorted for me without a problem. I didn't want to leave and wouldn't hesitate to go back. Ross House is a working stables,it's rare to have the freedom to get as close to the horses as you can there. I'd recommend a visit without hesitation. M. Rickerby
