From the friendly terrier that greets your arrival to the genuine care of Chris and Claire, you’ll feel right at home here. Families will particularly love the top floor rooms with shared bathroom – your own little empire.For breakfast, Chris gives you Ballymoloe strawberry muesli then mans the Aga for a full fry up with eggs from the farm next door and jams made by a friend. You eat at an ancient refectory table, just as Charles II is rumoured to have done almost 400 years ago.Claire is slowly restoring the walled garden (roses, pretty paths, fruit trees and many birds) and evening is the time for a stroll around. The sitting room and conservatory are yours so plan the next adventure in the countryside or on the dramatic coastline. A place to bring books and unwind.
