Very pleasant surprise

Hadn't heard of this hotel before and previous locations in the area were fully booked.

Very pleasant surprise as the hotel was clean, welcoming staff and our bedroom in the main house was excellent. Quiet since off the main road but only a couple of miles away so easy to get around. Quality of restaurant food for breakfast and dinner was very good.
