Excellent service and all the little touches were there. I appreciated the effort to conserve water by simply collecting a bucket of water while showering for use in the beautiful gardens.

10/10 Exceptional

Loved staying in this beautiful peaceful house, looked after by friendly, helpful and warm host and staff. It was a lovely haven to come ‘home’ to each day. The breakfasts are delicious, bed comfortable, and the service excellent. It combines the warmth of a home with high quality service (but without the wastefulness or anonymity of a big hotel). Will definitely stay there again someday!
