  • “The only reason we would not book ...”
    The only reason we would not book again is we felt we saw most places around in the week we had.

They are superbly finished with underfloor heating, oak panels and a mix of slate and oak flooring and provide a mix of sizes and styles to suit all manner of guests. The cottages are set on a 140 acre estate encompassing walks, a pond, a fountain, a river with salmon fishing rights and wonderful gardens.
