Hi Lynda and John

Just wanted to say a big thanks for letting us stay

at the Spa House this past weekend.  We all had an amazing time and

enjoyed the facilities you had to offer.  Hopefully we left it as clean

and tidy as we could.  I’ll certainly be recommending the Spa House to

others who might want a break, enjoy fabulous countryside and the hot

tub and pool.  Also we were all impressed with the amount of hot water

in the morning for showers etc. We used Hannah for in house catering

and again would recommend her and the. Beaufort Arms was excellent as

well.  Thanks again    David Holton Feb ‘15
