Two very busy bicoastal lives, came together for the first time in about 35 years. The spot had to be perfect.It was more than either of us expected. We met both Kurt and Eleanor and it was immediately apparent that they take great pride in their cottages and gardens and all the history of the estate. It was beautiful and had everything that was needed for a few days away to catch up. Tons of restaurants for foodies and plenty of unique shopping experiences, or stay in the cottage all day and hear only the birds. Tucked away there is not the usual traffic sounds. Only silence. I have travelled the world and this was the greatest place I have ever stayed We shall return! Thank you for a perfectly perfect stay.
