After a long but pleasant journey through outstanding scenery we arrived at Kirnan House in lovely late afternoon sunshine. We were initially welcomed by Ross and Di's daughter Beth along with a variety of friendly Spaniels and several chickens. Our room was spacious and very comfortable with tea and fresh ground coffee available, along with a nearby fridge containing milk. We soon met Di and Ross and dinner was arranged for 7pm, but we were invited to go down at 6.30 for drinks. To our surprise we were shown into the sitting room by Ross who in spite of being in the middle of cooking dinner had time to prepare us the most delicious gin and tonic. We had taken our own wine which was waiting on the table for us, and then treated to a 4 course dinner worthy of a 2 star restaurant. The cheese course, a baked Brie with oat cakes was served back in the sitting room, followed by coffee, where we were once again joined by our host for a glass of wine.
After a refreshing night's sleep in an extremely comfortable bed, it was back to the dinning room for fresh fruit salad followed by another delicious meal of bacon, home made sausage and eggs from the chickens clucking round the garden. After breakfast Ross took time to show us round the garden and introduced us to the rest of the family, consisting of lambs, pigs and donkeys. Ross and Di have taken on the enormous task of restoring the 26 acres of garden to their former glory, and if what they have done so far is anything to go by it will be truly magnificent. Our only disappointment was that we were only staying one night, as this lovely relaxing place with its delightful hosts deserves longer. We can't wait to return.
