I have Autism Spectrum Disorder so need a bit of extra care and understanding. The staff here were polite and welcoming and the place was good value for money. The food was well cooked and adequate. Well done

What a charming little village, a true labour of love and we were informed that more was going to be added in the future for education purposes. Definitely worthy of a visit especially if you have children, it will be magical for them.
