Loved our time at the Ashdown House! The rooms were not only spotless but well appointed and blessed with a lovely view. The breakfast every morning was well stocked and tastefully presented with a combination of a cold buffet and hot plates. Our stay coincided with the flowering of a tree that permeated the air with a delightful, if not...
