From the start of planning, the hotel could not of been more help. They were absolutely wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. The actual evening was superb, from the moment we started. The food was very tasty and last minute requests were handled without fuss and hesitation. I would have no qualms about recommending this venue for any event....

The view out over the fields of sheep was a nice bonus. Breakfast in the restaurant was excellent. There was a decent selection of toast, pastries,...
