Not for the first time, my cycling pal and I dropped into the cafe at this venue on our Sunday cycle. There is usually a lovely lady working who manages to squeeze us in no matter how busy she is. We generally just have coffee and toast with the most amazing home made jams and marmalade. We never outstay our...

We really enjoyed our stay. The grounds are amazing and the food very good. Only a short drive from the city and feels like it's out in the middle of the countryside. Their is a nice walk along the canel and a very nice bar area to sit and relax in.
