Jan Harmsgat Country House
Wonderful, relaxing weekend.
We had a wonderful relaxing stay. The service was impeccable, I really can't rave enough as to how wonderful it was. The meals were prepared with fresh ingredients, delicious and visually appealing. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed. We look forward to visiting again.

Fabulous historic guesthouse in the country
Not only is Jan Harmsgat gorgeous , the staff are so friendly and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble. We loved our stay and will be back.

Jan Harmsgat Country House
Country style with a difference
Staff excellent. They even cleaned my car without asking which was a lovely surprise as the car was very dusty after lots of off road miles. Very comfortable place to stay. High quality. Accommodation old Victorian style but spacious and high quality. Fair trade business who genuinely care about the product they are selling. Staff are treated with the same principles and are valued in the Jan Harmsgat business.
