We enjoyed the break. The establishment excellent, good food, the hosts were great and I had some excellent fishing.
Good place to re-charge.

It may be a little out of the way, but it is a gem. The place caters for numerous types of accommodation from the manor house to the tented camps. We stayed in the tented accommodation, and it was perfect for a break away weekend far from the madding crowd. A real find!

Absolutely stunning place to stay. I would recommend it to anyone. Take your fishing rod with!
Colin Fargher Apr 2015
I Would definitely recommend it if you want a peaceful, quiet and relaxing weekend away from the rush of the city life.

I made the booking for my parents as a 45th wedding anniversary present from my sisters and I and had fabulous feedback from them. They thoroughly enjoyed their stay; the accommodation; food and hospitality. The only negative comments were about the poor state of the last stretch of road and the ill behaved children of other guests, but neither of these can be helped by the establishment.
