She has worked so very hard to make The Hermitage a wonderful place to stay. It is spotlessly clean and furnished to a high standard and is very cosy. Perfect to come back to and relax after a busy day out and about. The beautiful garden is a real sun trap and the veranda perfect to enjoy a bottle of wine and take in the splendid view. Thank you Lesley for a lovely holiday. Looking forward to returning.
