Reputed to be the oldest on the island, this lovely house lies in attractive gardens in a quiet glen less than five minutes' drive from the ferry terminal. It is a stylish, elegant country house, adorned with ornaments from around the world. The delightful bedrooms are furnished in classical style; some are contained in a pretty courtyard conversion. There are two inviting drawing rooms and a bright dining room where award-winning contemporary cuisine is served. The dishes include fresh eggs laid by the hotel's own ducks and hens, vegetables, fruit and herbs from the kitchen garden, and mushrooms and berries are foraged in season from the estate.
