Published Comment: "Wonderful Alice-in-Wonderland like gardens full of hide-away-nooks and interesting focal points. The train carriages are cosy experience with the original detailing preserved as much as possible to give that "First Class" of yesteryear feel, furniture well chosen, and a lovely drop of port on arrival perfect to stave off the winter chill! The meal was divine, we would have loved to sample the full menu. Hosts friendly, accommodating, and always going that extra step to provide a wonderful experience. The whole showed attention to detail and pride. Have already recommended it to anyone who'll listen, and will continue to do so. It was a shame we only stayed one night - next time we'll stay longer! A memory maker experience that we'll be relating to our children & probably grand-children, lol.
Thank you."
