Do miss this!
Hannah and Paddy are amazing hosts. It was the perfect stay to finish a perfect 40th anniversary holiday! It is a beautiful place to stay with so much history and the chef’s (Paddy) cooking was an unexpected delight. Our hosts facilitated wonderful conversation in the drawing room among the guests. It was so much fun.

This is an old manor house with comfortable “shabby chic” decor, run by a lovely couple who really enjoy meeting their guests. The grounds are pleasant to explore with a nice perimeter walk through a rhododendron jungle, pastures, a raspberry patch and more. Friendly cats and other farm creatures wander about the garden. Dinner was a set menu, well imagined and presented, with a good wine list and cocktail options. The chef and the host are friends and also musicians so you may be treated to an after dinner song or two. Overall a pleasant experience.
