The owners called as we hadn't arrived before sunset to check that we weren't lost. We were greeted very warmly, also by their beautiful dog, Xena, and were shown to the cottage despite...

We stayed at the Grange on Hermitage for two nights a few weekends back. It provided a lovely rural retreat set in a beautiful well-cared for garden. We stayed in one of the purpose-built, very generous bedrooms attached to the side of the house. The queen size room was well-designed and spacious as was the bathroom which had a spa...

Hi Ian J We do appreciate the time you have taken to review our property. I think you have summarised why a lot of guests enjoy staying at our property- it shares country hospitality with guests who enjoy a quiet location which is still close enough to the major tourist attractions, restaurants and cellar door outlets.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this B&B. We stayed in one of their cabins which was extremely clean and comfortable. The cabin had a wonderful verandah overlooking the gardens and valley on which we could enjoy our meals and late night drinks! Owners are lovely people, very accommodating, kind and knowledgeable.
