Tea/Coffee/Muffins were offered & gratefully accepted on the Terrace. Dinner was glorious, unhurried &... More

Lovely couple of days spent at Hanora's Cottage - not only was the accommodation and surrounding countryside first rate; a full Gluten free menu was available with freshly baked g/f bread & muffins to boot! A great family run business.
