    I've seen a few comments that dogs are welcome around the grounds so just wondering can you have a wonder round of an evening and enjoy a glass of wine or cup of tea outside?

    It is a lovely secluded bay, forest tracks as well as the gardens, stretch of beach at the back of the hotel, there is also a cliff walk that can be taken from the hotel, no doubt they could supply you with more information.
    Is it possible to visit the hotel just for lunch?
