What an amazing place. Gardens were beautiful, a real credit to the owner. Then the food. Oh my god so delicious. Everything was perfect. The owner, chef and staff all take the time to come and chat to you.
Such a relaxing and calming place! A must for anyone seeking mindfulness. Try having a coffee or tea at their outdoor tables. Wort every minute!
