Fantastic review of Maison Talbooth in Travel Editor.com we just had to share it with you!

To give you a taster, here’s an excerpt:

There were guests lazing on the grass in giant hammocks and families taking afternoon tea on the terrace. A full-size tennis court was over to our left and a curious gated building – which I later discovered was the Pool House – lay invitingly at the end a long gravel path…’
