After a warn welcome we were shown to our beautiful room. A lovely afternoon tea was provided with a delicious chocolate cake and lots of information about the area and where we might go for dinner. Our hosts were so friendly and their daughter Abby was enchanting. Beautiful gardens, comfortable rooms, amazing spa bath, I'm sure we will be back....

We have just spent the last weekend with the Darnell's and we can say one thing: This is not your average excellent place - it's not only tasteful, spotless, beautifully looked after by great people, but it has a quality that will really convince you to return.
