It was a delight to stay here.We were in the Rose suite which was very spacious and beautifully furnished. The breakfasts were excellent and the early evening welcome drinks and nibbles were a very nice touch.Our hosts Ron and Eleanor were very helpful particularly when we had trouble with our hire car.
