A property with old world charm. Not the most modern facilities but the important bits like bathroom and toilet facilities are excellent. Staff were friendly and helpful. A seamless stay.

A very lovely property, rooms are very clean and the staff are excellent! Welcomed with a smile and chat, checked on us every time we walked past reception. Food on site, large portions and great variety, very pleasant atmosphere. Beautiful grounds, had a lovely sit in the garden with a drink at the end of the day.
