My daughter and I stayed here for three days over the weekend at the end of April 2014.
We received a warm welcomt the moment we arrived. We booked a twin room and were pleasantly surprised to find we had two rooms for the price of one. The main double bedroom was connected by a landing to another room almost the same size with the bathroom leading off from this. Everything was beautifully presented and immaculate. The rooms were reached by a private entrance that led out on to the main drive and gardens. We enjoyed breakfast in the main house attached to the "apartment" as it seemed to us. The breakfast was lovely with a choice of cereals , yoghurts and full english including locally produced sausage. Everything was perfectly cooked to our liking. The dining room looked out over a private walled garden . Patio doors allowed us to sit outside and drink coffee in the morning sunshine whilst reading thoughtfully provided newspapers. The beautiful lounge had comfortable sofas and there was even a library for avid readers such as I.
The owners of this property have a great eye for design .
