This was a converted old church from 1826. . The place was breathtaking. The effort and attention to detail in this place made it such a unique and unforgettable experience right from the word go. We would not hesitate to recommend it. Especially for those looking for somewhere a bit different and that little bit special..We were very pleased with every aspect. The perfect venue for a very special family occasion.
Mr Ellison

A stunning property. The best we've stayed in. Beautifully furnished and well equipped.
Mr Teed

We were all very impressed with the property - it has a unique atmosphere and contains many personal touches which make it feel very homely. We would not hesitate to recommend a visit there to anyone looking to stay in the area. We really didn't want our stay there to end!
Mr Thomson

The light and spacious accommodation was a good central point for visiting attractions North, South, East and West.
