We stayed here while on honeymoon in the U.K., and it was beautiful. We took a stroll around the property, took in the scenery, and went into town for some dining and shopping. The staff was so friendly and definitely made our stay! Would absolutely recommend staying here! Hope to visit again!

Nice room. Unfortunately we didn't get a lake view, but some rooms do. Dinner very good. Wine list extensive, meat well cooked, and the kitchen staff staff prepared to be flexible to accommodate needs. The staff were great. The building itself is lovely. Very comfortable lodges and bar, and short but pretty walks in the grounds. The location is wonderful....
