    We've just returned from this beautiful spot - literally - like an hour ago. Unfortunately just a quick stop but we will revisit and stay longer. Also well worth mentioning are the fabulous kitchens and dining area. It was being well used this morning with the rain bucketing down! One bloke lit one of the inside wood fires and it was nice and toasty inside out of the foul weather. Thanks for your blog.
