Wow where do I start ...this place is just beautiful. Imagine checking into a plush hotel with rich furnishings in each of the rooms and every little detail thought of. I do not want to spoil the surprise .. however it would not be a true review if I did not mention the fact that just about every room... the dining room, sitting room, oak room (with TV and DVD player) even the front foyer all have jars of all sorts of goodies to snack on!! (Great after a day of sightseeing)
We were welcomed by Sam (filling in for Lorna and Donald for that day) with cake and tea (delicious) we were shown our gorgeous room and told that apart from the other guest rooms we were welcome to use any other rooms including the kitchen!!
We were travelling with our 3 month old daughter ... as any parent knows you definietly need a kitchen with a litle one cleaning, microwave etc. so this was another great point.
The hosts/owners Lorna and Donald are to be commended, they have really set the benchmark for B&B's in our minds. They really do go the extra mile for example I forgot shampoo and conditioner.. no need to worry .. in your bathroom you will find toothpaste, razor, soap, shampoo and conditioner and I am sure if there was anything else you needed you would be helped out!
We explanined that we were visiting from Australia for a large family wedding and that we needed a place for a large 'meet the family' dinner.. this of course was no trouble and Lorna even went so far as to offer the dining room to us in order for us to host a dinner... well what a feast it was!!
The list of does not stop the beautiful surrounds, the cows, the bees, the gorgeous gardens and amazing pond and carp this place is really worth a visit.
We really can not fault this place.. beautiful, so accomodating a real home away from home. We would recommend anyone to stay... a very romantic setting too.
