The standard of accommodation was spacious and beautifully maintained with all the little extras you would expect in a high quality Hotel. The views in all direction is of manicured gardens, trees and green field. A Balm to the soul and...

Allan even lent us his SatNav so that we could find the way to meet our niece and family as we weren't sure of the route. Their house...

100/100 for recharging the batteries and experiencing luxury country hospitality. So easily accessible yet the feeling of being away from it all. Perfect way to spend our holiday away from our city life. Thanks Allan and Margaret!
