Rooms are very clean and tastefully decorated, lovely touches like fresh milk in a flask and full size shampoo for you to use during your stay were greatly appreciated. Our little dog comes everywhere with us and this was a great place to bring a dog, treats and a bowl in our room was another nice touch. Our evening meal... More

This is an absolute gem. It is so good we are reluctant to share the secret. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room well appointed and comfortable and the meals were superb. We cannot commend it highly enough.
