This was a beautiful hotel with an amazing property. There were weddings there the day we checked in and another on the day we were leaving and I can see why. What a beautiful venue for a wedding. The accommodations were lovely and the onsite restaurant was very good as well. I would definitely recommend ...
Exactly as described, well thought out, excellent condition and very clean. Milk, tea, coffee, even dishwasher tablets were all provided. Everything for a relaxing break.
We had a wonderful relaxing stay in this lovely cottage. Beautifully decorated and fully equipped with all we needed. In a great peaceful location but not far away from all the places we wanted to visit. We will be back :-)
Excellent facility with nice grounds (children friendly) and superb beer garden. Food of a very high quality. Staff excellent and friendly except one manager that was a tad off on one occasion.
Actually a superbly nice place in a very nice rural setting
Friendly staff, clean rooms and good breakfast. Would go again.
Fabulous place. Beautiful setting, immaculate accommodation and so peaceful. Could have happily stayed there for longer!
The staff were very helpful and attentive. Room was very clean and spacious.
