Our room was small but had everything we needed including a fabulous fell view. The staff were really friendly and the food excellent. My husband loved his duck and we both rated... More

We're very sorry that these guests did not enjoy their stay - we're pleased that they enjoyed the food but in terms of the comments on the room size and quality we can only point to lots of other satisfied customers.

Thanks for the kind words - we agree that there is more work to do on the outside areas, and they're improving all the time. Old outhouses and disused play areas that were present last year have been removed, painting and decorating has been undertaken and hedges planted to act as screening and enhance the pleasant seating area. We have... More

The setting is very picturesque, lovely garden backing onto the nature reserve. Our room was quite small (it is a traditional Inn) but very clean. Our evening meal was... More

The dinner was excellent as was the breakfast. Our daughters dog was made welcome and was allowed in the bar area but... More

Stayed for two nights mid week on the Summer Sizzler deal which was excellent value for DBB. Staff were welcoming, friendly and service was good. The food was excellent, and the portions were large - breakfast was tasty and featured fresh eggs from their own hens and home cured bacon. We had room 3, directly above the front door with... More

When we got there we were concerned it was a bit out of the way, but there was no need the staff could not have done more, very friendly, extremely helpful from the reception staff to the waiting on staff, to cleaning staff. We ate there both nights, food is well worth the money, not cheap but good value. Very... More
