Having never done a trip advisor review before, this review is testament to our stay at school cottages. A warm personal welcome, immaculate rooms and facilities and incredibly cooked locally sourced food. The gardens were in an amazing condition and the animals were a great addition. Absolutely first class stay in every department!
