Wonderful stay with exceptional service. lovely.

What a delightful place to stay. From a very warm welcome to complimentary beer and sherry plus home baked cup cakes we were treated exceptionally well. Breakfast was super and the recommendation for dinner reservation proved perfect. Although we are well travelled a couple of firsts for us - an open fire in the lounge area of our cottage and before we departed our car was washed!
