“We had 40 family and friends staying for our wedding weekend and I honestly cannot say enough about the staff and how friendly and helpful they were. It was like they were part of our family! The views and food were just fantastic! We have already booked for our year anniversary. Just the best place for an outdoors wedding. Our love to all, xxx”

“We stayed here last minute and are thoroughly pleased we did. A real mix of tradition, comfort and hospitality. Great views along the coast and down to the beach. Our bedroom was well equipped and appointed and exceptionally comfy. The restaurant served excellent breakfast and evening meal with all the staff attentive and friendly. The gardens and morning rooms have fantastic views. A real find and we will definitely return!!”
