Reviews of this property
"A beautifully restored country house situated in a quiet location and set in extensive and lovely grounds. We had a very comfortable double bedroom with on-suite and its own separate lounge area with coffee and tea making facilities. There is free Wi-Fi.
The food was excellent and we had a traditional Spanish three course dinner with wine and after dinner drinks. The portions were enormous.
We only stopped for only one night but could easily have stopped longer if we had not needed to travel on.
Highly recommended.", (Client 2016)
"Wonderful food and hospitality, mealtimes were truly a delight", (Client 2014)
