I contacted Agnes after finding rave reviews online. We were on the home stretch of a less than successful honeymoon and I was looking for a place with a bit more .. edge/character/romance.
We found it here.
The mezze plate and wine that welcomed us was only surpassed by Agnes more than welcome attitude and hospitality. She had the country touch than so many places lack these days.
We stayed in the Dairy. The attention to detail in the design is to be commended. The bed was amazing as is the incredible open shower. Might not be everyone's cup of tea but I loved it.
The best bit of the entire stay for us, was sitting in the spa in the depth of winter, with nothing but the stars above us and the steam from the spa. Tranquillity doesn't come much better.
It's quiet. It's peaceful. If you're after a retreat then this is it. It's a drive into town so there's no late night stumble home from the local pub and it's not the place for parties.
Would happily return or recommend to anyone.
The WiFi is a bit flakey. So my only suggestion is that a WiFi extender is put in place so the situation improves. It's a remote area with limited mobile coverage so those that want WiFi can use it.
Thank you Agnes, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you.
