We stayed for just one night on our return to the UK and it was a prefect family stop over. Clean, comfortable and well decorated family rooms with lots of special little touches, great attention to detail. Delicious breakfast and friendly hosts.
Great location (especially after a long drive), it’s a short walk down to the lake and village, where there is plenty of choices for food – recommend the Creperie. And with in walking distance of the Castle. We are a family of four and looked around the castle in about an hour / an hour and half- you won’t need much more than that – if planning a look before a return journey.
