Recently spent just one night (our daughter had two) made to feel welcome and couldn't do enough for you. Good breakfast,with a choice of locally sourced food. The breakfast room was also available for having a take away. Not only child friendly but dog friendly as well. Such a friendly and warming couple. Will definitely be back again.
