Mr. Martin Fletcher.
I really couldn't fault Gwern Borter. Loved the gardens the intriguing collection of antiques and curios. Spacious, comfortable room with lovely views of the mountains behind the Manor. Excellent breakfast with plenty of choice. Comfortable lounge although we didn't really use it as we were out all day making the most of the wonderful sunshine.
