Allan and Margaret have created a stunning country retreat that is simply world class with service and hospitality equal to the setting. Our two children aged 6 and 9 simply loved exploring the beautifully appointed grounds, lovingly planted over many years. As warm and inviting hosts, Allan and Margaret naturally make you feel welcome. We would definitely stay there again...
