It is easy to understand all the wonderful reviews for this place after spending a few days here. The somewhat daunting (though optional) prospect of sharing your table with a bunch of strangers may put some people off but actually it was a great and fun experience. The superb dinner served on both nights certainly helps matters. Paddy prepared highly flavoured and cleverly executed dishes, course after course. Every bite was delicious!
The green room was beautiful- very comfortable and atmospheric too! The bed is not very big but sooo comfortable. We had two great sleeps while here.
The walks around the grounds are lovely too- snowdrops, daffodils, big old trees, bee hives, little paths, out buildings to explore. Probably a great place for kids. We will definitely be back.
