What customers & critics say about us...

"The hotel is charming, the hosts are convivial and I couldn't think of a better way of coming out of lockdown than being looked after so well in such beautiful surroundings. The food was adapted to suit our preferences and the breakfasts were very good, all made with local produce and expertly cooked"

"From the minute you arrive Jane and Angus offer a very warm welcome to their spacious and comfortable country house hotel. For the evening meal Angus creates deliciously tasty meals using wonderful locally sources ingredients - his sauces are legendary."
