    "Lovely old farmhouse, with great pool area and green lawns. Beautiful old dining room. Loved the staff - two very friendly and helpful ladies, who went out of their way to make our stay great. It was freezing cold, so the electric blankets on the beds were a great treat."

    "On our return visit we were surprised that things were even better than previous visits. Wendy was superb. If they gave Diplomas for hospitality and comfort, this one would be "With Honours". Highly recommended if you want to be spoiled in lovely surroundings. Even impressed an aging Aunt!!"
