I made a return visit to Ponsonby House recently and enjoyed it as much as ever. My room was lovely, and Jonathan and Bernadette were of course the perfect hosts. They, along with the charm of the property, make Ponsonby House very special.

“"Jasmine" overlooks the garden and is located at the rear of the house and therefore furthest from the street. It also has windows on two sides of the room which gives it a light and airy atmosphere.”
