We stayed here for 3 nights and could not fault it. The rooms have every thing that you need and the view over the fabulous gardens is great. The breakfast was enough to keep us going until the evening. There was one of the best selections I have seen. We thoughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back again....

Great food, excellent service and an amusing freindly dog - what more could you want? Comfy beds? They're there. Beautiful gardens? They're there too. Great places to visit? They're there in abundance and within 30mins drive. Thoroughly recommended.
