A great concept but rather 'commercial'
Very difficult to summarise as so much happens here! There's the winery and vineyards, the really amazing formal kitchen garden, the farm animals and associated products to buy and eat in the restaurant; the fabulous scenery and great facilities.
Staff and Management were very helpful and friendly. The rooms were a mixture of traditional and very high tech and some of the gadgets definitely placed style over practicality. We never did work out the light switches or the taps in the kitchen!
The concept of a room overlooking the garden sounded idyllic. However in reality the two were separated by the main footpath from the car park to the tea rooms. Consequently there was little privacy and we were stared at, photographed, videoed, pointed at and even asked for directions by passers by. Definitely not what we were expecting and, as a result we went out during the day and enjoyed sitting out in the evenings, when the coachloads of visitors had gone. This is undoubtedly an extremely popular local attraction.
