Our favourite rooms
Go to sleep in the Honeymoon Suite and wake up looking out to the rolling hills through the wall of glass doors. It’s also home to a crystal chandelier, a dressing table with an antique brush and mirror, a roll-top bath behind the bed and two enormous rain-head showers. Spacious Suite 3 is the breeziest: it has terraces on both sides of the building.
There’s a pool at the bottom of the garden overlooking the green hills and wind turbines in the distance.
Riding boots and jodhpurs to have a canter on one of the rescued horses at the on-site refuge. No beach towels: there’ll be one ready to use in your room.
There’s a two-night minimum stay. With a bit of notice, yoga and massages can be arranged.
This hotel is better suited to couples - leave the children at home!
Water is solar-heated, everything that can be is recycled and all the building materials are reclaimed.
