"A very memorable visit, a real education in how things should be done. Unusually, this property and the business have a great deal of the character of the owners built into it, but their enthusiastic approach is never forced. Their informed, thoughtful commonsense application to the practicalities means that disabled guests can totally relax here.
The level of accessibility and the necessary equipment never overwhelms, so that the overall impression is of the fabulous building and luxurious fixtures and fittings - Stunning.
This property would work for anyone; it's an absolute haven for the disabled and their carers. Perhaps not everything is possible here, but it makes you think it could be and that's a rare achievement."
