We stayed for one night in September 2013..
We were stunned by the gardens which are completely beautiful and even have woodland walks.
We also loved the simplicity of the rooms which had everything we needed such as comfortable clean beds with cotton bedding, kettle with tea, coffee and hot chocolate and most importantly peace and quiet.
We had an ensuite room which although quite small and compact was fine for us.
My brother also stayed but wanted different things to us and so was disappointed with the lack of TV and radio in the rooms, but this is precisely why I liked it.
So if you want a hotel or B&B with noise, bustle and lots of technology this may not be for you.
But if you want a break from all of that and be in a place which helps you switch off and live a simpler life in beautiful surroundings then this is perfect.
I would definitely stay again.
One small issue was the games room (pool table and table tennis table which is written about in the literature in the rooms) which is in the basement and I suspect isn't used very much as it really needs a bit of TLC. I didn't mind but my brother wanted to use it.
