The breakfasts here are legendary; generous and fresh with, amongst others things, bacon, eggs, granola, cereals, yoghurt, fruit and of course berries. There is plenty of space to explore, around the gardens and the farm where, if you like, you can try some more of their fresh fruit and berries and get to meet the sheep.
