I have stayed here a few times, been to organised events, and eaten in the restaurant many times. This place cannot be faulted. It is beautiful and clean, and the staff are really helpful and friendly. Such a nice place to stay.

We stayed for 3 nights for a wedding. Amazing food, great service, and nothing to much trouble for any of the staff. We stayed in the Causey Cottage which was just lovely. I can recommend without hesitation.
