Bathroom was exceptionally clean and tidy! Very impressed that the Tesla battery charge was available although we were not able to use it. It was obvious that nobody had cleaned under the bed though! Friendly and easy check-in. As we were only there one night we did not take advantage of any of the additional facilities.

I loved the privacy of the grounds, the alpacas were beautiful. Upon arrival we entered the room to find they already had the heater on so it was lovely and warm. Laundry on site was great and staff gave change when required. When we asked about walking trails they were happy to give us directions and informed us of trails close by. The only sad thing was due to covid their restaurant was not in service for breakfast lunch or tea, so it meant we had to go elsewhere to eat. Otherwise, i would have eaten there as well. Thanks for having a lovely place to stay and will return in the future and have already told friends about you. Liz and James

Great location to Clare. Parking was quite difficult to get in and out from the rooms we were in. Found it interesting that we paid the same amount as relatives who had a spa room and opposite the pool with easy parking compared to none of the above for us.
