Didn't stay. But visited gardens with our family of young kids. Weather was super. Dinosaur carvings in tree stumps were unique and a big hit with kids. Nice trails to wander aroumd the gardens, which were well maintaines. Had great coffee after in cafe. Would recommend.

Gorgeous gardens, with about two hours of walking trails. Feels very much like New Zealand in the gardens.

Thoroughly enjoyed a 3 night stay in this wonderful house in January 2015 and I can imagine what it would be like in Spring, Summer or Autumn. The host and staff were very welcoming and the accommodation was superb. We dined in their Thai restaurant which was top notch and very reasonably priced for the quality provided. As a keen amateur photographer I had lots to keep me busy both in the gardens and the general area, even in the depths of winter. Highly recommended!!!!

The perfect place for a quiet getaway. A beautiful & wonderfully comfortable house nestled away in the depths of nature. The rooms are spacious & really comfortable, merging the classic old style with a contemporary feel. Our room had a great view out over the treetops across to Dingle Bay.The grounds are absolutely amazing.. stroll in the deep green & enjoy the fantastic wooden sculptures. My favourite was the reclining chair carved into the tree truck which spans the river far below, and where I can't wait to get back to & lie reading a book listening to the water flowing on a warm spring or summer day. I didn't try the Thai cuisine this visit, but I hear it's fab, and I'm really looking forward to getting back there in April, spending a day wandering the gardens/ strolling down to the beach 5 mins walk away, and then coming back for a Thai feast & an evening reading by a blazing fire! If you're looking for silence & a complete switch off in luxury... this is definitely the place to go!

This is the best B&B we have ever stayed in. We stayed here in May 2015. The room was really well presented, the sea view was beautiful & the bed so comfy. The gardens are just magical! Felt so relaxed during our stay. It just wasn't long enough, so we will be going back for longer this year.

I recently stayed in this wonder place. It is an oasis of calm away from the rest of the world. Spotlessly clean bedroom, warm and friendly welcome, excellent food. Well worth a visit.
