We loved the beautiful, big king sized bed...

We we're looking for a quiet, romantic getaway and this property ticked most of the boxes! Log fire, music, and lit candles upon arrival and a great kitchen and comfortable bed. Lovely small touches of port and chocolate too. Only disappointment was realising the spa bath didn't function on our last night when it was too late to contact owners...

Guests can expect to rediscover romance whilst they relax the body, refresh the mind and rejuvenate the soul.
