The charming, historical feel continues through the main edifice, a family home, which belonged to the owners of Harvey's Bristol Crème in the 1700s. Take a load off in the foyer or browse the colorful collection of local artwork.
The puffy white clouds, blue sky, and pink cottages make for a stunning view from the pristinely clean pool and sundeck.
