    “We were absolutely delighted with the property & surroundings, the property was spotless, well equipped, spacious for 6 people, used the balcony for all our meals a lovely outdoor space to have, loved the hot tub & use of the pool, used the hotel for the spa which was lovely also.”

    The Manager was a pleasure, very informative & helpful. Lovely complimentary tea/coffee/biscuits & milk on arrival. Enjoyed local walks into the hotel grounds, fabulous nearby Farmshop for breakfast or lunch or cake called Barleymows a must visit! Highly recommended we would definitely look to stay again.
