Highs & Lows

  • The team at Lime Wood is exceptional. So friendly and genuinely interested in making your stay a memorable one.

  • The Herb House Spa! I had a Pai Detox and Decongest Facial, which was full of organic antioxidants. Three days after, my skin still felt great!

  • If you fancy a walk in the woods, they can provide you with wellies, jackets, bikes, maps and a picnic.

  • The home-smoked platters at Harnett & Holder are incredible. So melty and flavorsome.

  • The wine list is a little price-intimidating. Our sommelier was a wonder and we didn’t mind asking for ‘reasonable’ recommendations.

  • Lack of lighting in the bathroom of our Pavilion Suite.
