Throughout the 1900's the estate lands were sold and eventually so was the house itself.

Transy House, or Garvock House as it is currently known, was taken over by the present owners in 1996 and completely refurbished to convert it into a small hotel.
Care and attention has been given in combining the wealth of original features with every modern facility to ensure a comfortable and relaxing stay for all.
