I have been visiting this wonderfilled, interesting nest with different aged members of my family for over 20 years. The once immaculate & spring fragrant herb gardens have become a delicious rambling, featuring a tranquil box hedged water feature and several private nests for outdoor quiet time.
We were walmy welcomed & our room, (Queen Twin with ensuite = highly recommended) was clean.
I must mention, that as the currrent owners do not live on-site and the establishment is run primarily by travellers ... the gardens could have done with a few hours work ...
We loved the dog, which was not the one featured on the pic on the back gate ...
These are all petty and little things ~ I'll return again for sure :)
