Beautiful gardens and the cottage was amazing. We were there for a friends wedding and the staff went above and beyond! Only advice would be to request a fan in the cottage, it was very warm well into the evening and as the cottages are surrounded by the garden and trees there are too many mossies to be comfortable leaving windows open

It is Paradise for us. We felt like a pair of Film Stars and relaxed completely after the busy family Christmas celebrations.
