"We were upgraded from the garden room to the house and it made a great deal of difference to our enjoyment of our stay. The town was within easy walking distance and very enjoyable to spend time in. We went on a wine tour suggested by the hotel and it was a lovely way to see the countryside and taste the local wines."
