                                          We had a wonderful stay at your guesthouse. We have stayed here before and would make use of you again. Will recommend to others.

                                          Wow what a wonderful place, the whole atmosphere is just so special, the gardens match the elegance of the home. The rooms are comfortable and cosy. An elegance in the dining hall allows one to expect guests to appear in Victorian period costume to match the home and its decorations. The food was good and filling. I will use the facility again. You can also try it. Addie
