Gorgeous little B&B
Lovely, out of the way setting. Nice pool, tennis court, walking paths. Our rooms were nice and the bathroom was modern. Service for tea and in the dining room was fantastic. We enjoyed the 5-course dinner well into the night. No self-serve laundry whoch put a cramp in our plans but not a huge deal. The desk staff was super accomodating
