Great service. The staff were friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Our room was pleasant and comfortable and looked out over the gardens. However it was quite dark due to some heavy dark furniture. Lovely peaceful location and the breakfasts were stunning with home made breads and jams and marmalade. We would stay here again. It was exceptional

Dogs are very...

Our room was large and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was modern and appeared to have been recently r furbished. All staff...
