    We would love to go back there one day. The annexe has everything you need and so comfortable.

  • Susan

    The welcome pack on arrival was extremely welcome. The accommodation was comfortable and one of the cleanest we have stayed in. Beautiful views from the conservatory and a great place to relax. The private patio garden was perfect for our small dog. Will hopefully return to enjoy the tranquility another time.
