Stayed for 2 nights to see the air show. Whilst in a good spot it was overpriced for the quality of accommodation. It is definitely a basic 3 star and at £120 a night not worth it. Although it has some parking on site this is not reserved for guests so was always full with people parking there to go... More

Friendly, welcoming accommodation above a good pub serving decent food. Just remember you are staying above a pub and you will enjoy your stay. Location is brilliant, we will be visiting again and would recommend to others.

Got there and told theirs no parking . A member of staff said just sit in your car and wait.Didn't realies that paying £125.00 means sitting in your car waiting. If the owners moved there cars would mean parking for guests. Also on the website it doesnt say it a public house . Waste of our time getting there. Will... More
