Fantastic accomodation, gracious and knowldgeable hosts for whom nothing was too much trouble, excellent breakfast. Perfect for those wanting the benefits of the personal touch rather than bland corporate boxes.

Anne, Bruce and their team are wonderful! Nothing was too much trouble for them and they went out of their way to please and accommodate us. The house was stunning. Attention to detail and filled with T.L.C. Breakfast was amazing. We stayed for 5 nights and could of stayed longer. Excellent gem. We will be back.

Ann and Bruce are very personable, kind and helpful people who love having guests to stay. There is an honesty bar where you can help yourself to water and wine, very reasonably priced. The continental breakfast is laid out each morning and a full cooked breakfast is cooked to order by the wonderful kitchen staff. The accommodation is beautiful and...
