Booked through a KBB Deal, just as well because full price would have felt like robbery! the location is beautiful with a castle with history attached (great tour given), reception was OK and we had the room with en suite in the cottage. Unfortunately the room was rather dirty and full of cobwebs in and around the fire place and from the ceiling. the 21st century attempt at electrics and electronics need to be tidied up, the TV and kettle don't need to look like an after thought. Breakfast OMG, COBWEBS hanging over the table where the self serve table was we where served breakfast by the resident Gardener/in keeper (bar was not open due to few guests) and now chef (what a man) the cooked breakfast however was really good, all we can say is in the right hands this could be a Gem!
