From the moment we arrived, this charming, beautiful Georgian house encaptures your heart and you don't want to leave.
The lovely owner's Jenny and Justin are so welcoming you feel at ease straight away ( you don't have to be mega rich, just be yourself)
We had decided to knock another thing off our bucket list, in our 70s and tried Glamping. We were so lucky as the site was all ours over the time we stayed. It's really made for the younger generation, but we had no complaints, comfortable, warm and enjoyable. One thing to remember to bring, slip on shoes to go back and forth to the toilet and shower blocks ( they were immaculately clean, a disabled shower facility too. I'd suggest they place a straight back chair in there for people to sit, as people with balance problems need to sit after showering.
Breakfast was included and delicious. The dining room staff so lovely and friendly, couldn't do enough for you.
Dinner is optional, we did it on our last evening, meeting other guests at the big table all together.
The most exciting thing was their own brand of Gin, so smooth and delicious. We had a picnic in the grounds one afternoon, listening to the birds chirping and watching the Swallows diving and ducking in and out.
Our Son bought me a Voucher for Ballyvalane, it was the most relaxing and peaceful stay we have had in a long time. Would 100% recommend to anyone looking for that something special break away. You can stay in the main house or do Glamping.
Thank you to Jenny and Justin and every member of staff who made this trip so special to us. Hopefully we will get the chance to return and next time stay in the house.
