We were greeted by a fine and well maintained property surrounded by immaculate lawns and then at reception. It was a very good start. We were offered an upgrade as we were the only folk staying. and conducted to our room which was delightful with the midday sun streaming in through the large windows A huge bed was the centre piece of a very fresh and inviting room with copious storage in drawers and a decent wardrobe. The bathroom housed a bath that paid no heed to water conservation and a shower that was ruthlessly efficient. In the evening we took a sherry in the bar which was well stocked chose wine from a list which was very reasonably priced and sat down at our table to a splendid meal. Would that we were a couple of decades younger and we could have eaten more. It was delightful as was the breakfast.
