Our only quibble was that our twin room had for seating, only a small chaise longue and that the bathroom radiator wasn’t warm. However, of the many pluses in what is a beautiful period house, restored to a high standard, is a beautiful twin-bedroom with a big window, comfy beds, a good sized tv and tea/coffee; a fine bright bathroom with a walnut floor, a shower and a free-standing bathtub: a big breakfast-room with a nice cold buffet inc. fresh fruit and hot croissants as well as cooked-to-order hot food. Lastly but not least, as befits such a comfortable house, friendly, gentle and kind hosts.

We stayed here on route to the ploughing, and we were amazed. From the time we arrived everything was perfect. The room was unreal, like something out of a romantic novel. We enjoyed a hearty breakfast before heading off on our journey. The hosts are definitely the hosts with the mostest.

What a lovely place! The hostess was very accommodating. The food was wonderful and the rooms were nice and clean. It was a relaxing place with a gorgeous home. Close to the town center and nice that it offered parking.

Have stayed here for the last 4 years. Ailish and her staff have always been so welcoming. The rooms are immaculate and the breakfast is as good as you’ll get in a 5 Star hotel. Hope to see you all again next year. Keep up the great work.
