Peaceful retreat
The location is amazing with spectacular views down the river. So peaceful and quiet. The room was very clean and the attention to detail was great. Breakfast was served in the room and was a real treat. Service was friendly. A couple of minor things that it is worth knowing about if you visit. still say they take credit cards but they do not. Parking is off street. It's safe and plenty of it but it is not on site and a short walk up a hill. Don't let it put you off - great place to stay!

Beautiful place, felt unwelcomed though
Great room and fantastic breakfast. The grounds are beautiful. The only downside was the fact that it is a “family house” (their term) and it didn’t feel like guests were very welcomed. The very nice sitting room with a fireplace is roped off and you must ask to go in. We went out to sit on the balcony and were yelled at by a woman saying “This is my area!”. I think the owners need to decide if they want a private house or a hotel…
Wonderful breakfast
Stunning views
Very nice sitting room
