  • Really fantastic location, lovely rooms, everything really clean and there to use

    Really fantastic location, lovely rooms, everything really clean and there to use.It was just teh 2 of us, but teh place would also be great for 2-3 couples to stay as each bedroom is excellent with own ensuite etc.. . We did found it a little cold at times, had the heaters running flat out the whole time, I suppose it is one of the oldest house in the country so not that well insulated ;-) We will definitely stay here again !
