An unplanned trip to the mother city found my son and I booking into the Manor, allowing us to experience the old Dutch style type accommodation that CT is renowned for, and me an opportunity to show my son some of the most picturesque surroundings one can experience whilst travelling.

We called in for a beer here as we were staying in a villa just up the road. Delightful outside garden area. They advertise afternoon teas which sounded good but we did not have. We did not eat or stay here so cannot comment on those facilities.
