What our visitors are saying

I stayed there for my partners birthday weekend and had a great time the room was nice and the restaurant had amazing food. The price of the room was affordable and the same with the meal. The service was amazing and the fireplace in reception was really warming.


A regular meeting place for a group of lace making friends. As usual a fabulous weekend, great food, good friends with lots of fun and laughter. We have already booked for next year.


My friends and I decided once again to stay at Sanctuary House. We stayed in the deluxe rooms. We felt like princesses as the rooms have wooden posted beds. The rooms were very clean and welcoming. The food at the restaurant was amazing and the service was great.


We’d love to hear from you!
