We have just had the real pleasure of a four night stay at this splendid home from home. I cannot praise Ros and Edward enough for their warm welcome and unending efforts to make our stay nothing but a pleasure. A lovely couple and, indeed, a lovely family.
We were welcomed with tea and biscuits served in the lounge whilst Edward did his best to book us in. This in itself was a great event as he is an enthusiastic conversationalist and, as I too love a natter, the booking in went frequently astray!! Introductions were made to family and pets and life stories exchanged.
We stayed in the pink room which was charming, warm, comfortable and spacious . Fresh milk was supplied daily and they even found space in the fridge to chill our wine for us.
Ours was mostly a walking holiday. Ros and Edward have great local knowledge and accompanied their suggestions with maps and refreshment recommendations.
We enjoyed meeting the horses stabled on the estate, and the warm and friendly attitude of everyone associated with the estate was just lovely.
A tour of the estate was on offer, time pressed on so we will take up this offer on our next visit.
Breakfast provided an extensive choice of local, quality produce.... and more welcome conversation.
At night the estate is quiet and restful. An alarm is needed or else you run the risk of not getting up!
Every day here was a pleasure. Ros and Edward have the gift of making you feel like a family friend, not a paying guest. Every day was a treat and we will visit again. Thank You.
