What our guests say

What a fantastic place. So peaceful, and our one-night stay was too short. The astronomer was brilliant, so pleased we booked to see the night sky. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Thank you all!

It was an amazing stay at Guesthouse De Denne, with a lovely view. We would really recommend this place! Thanks to Henrico for the warm welcome.

Davina & Yoachim, Belguim

Thank you for hosting us at your beautiful guesthouse. The food was amazing and the sights were mesmerising. Such a relaxed place and our stay of 2 days was not enough time!

Jack, Kim, Hugo, and Bram Gros-Herman, Holland

A truly amazing place with breathtaking scenery and astonishing views. Rooms are excellent & well equipped. Our only regret is that our hectic itinerary only allowed for a single overnight stay, otherwise we would have loved to spend some more relaxing time.
