What our guests say

  • A brilliant place to come away and do a spot of "light wedding planning."  We caught some really nice weather and it was quite the picture, standing on the balcony in warm sunshine, looking at snow capped mountains!  We enjoyed the back garden with the good weather and a cup of tea on the bench at the top of the garden takes some beating as the views from here are spectacular. I am sure we will be back before we know it.
