    Just a treat!

    What a delightful, comfortable and relaxing stay. Arrived to an upgrade. The service was possibly the best we’ve experienced to date. Incredibly attentive and efficient. Room was beautiful, bed soft and lovely. Can’t wait to return. Village is idle for a weekend of walking, lovely pub a few meters down the road. Would highly recommend.

    The Spa was wonderful and the breakfast staff were fabulous. Our bathroom was badly designed however and you had to sit at an angle because space was tight and on top of the heated towel rail. There were also wall to wall mirrors which is a bit disconcerting when sitting on the loo or trying to avoid your own image!!
