Testimonials

2 nights spent in an idyllic setting next to the river in well appointed rooms. A very warm welcome was typical of the personal service that was so professionally delivered. Fantastic food, locally sourced and beautifully presented was served in the glorious marquee. The dining area inside was cosy and inviting too and the delightful and generous breakfast did not disappoint.

Jenny

Such a great place to visit. We had 3 rooms and all were lovely with gorgeous views - they all felt very private too. All the staff were really friendly. Very dog friendly too with great walks nearby.
