As a young, female staying away on business it was so lovely to have somewhere warm & welcoming. The owner can't do enough for you and the food is that delicious I didn't want to go Home and cook for myself! I love the little touches such as a tea pot in your room and a few sweets. I'll be...

Arrived to a very warm welcome and excellent introduction to the facilities and accommodation. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean with a super-king bed and good sized bathroom with shower. Quite possibly our best ever nights sleep in hotel/guest house accommodation! Breakfast and evening meals were excellent and arrived in good time with the sort of wait you would... More

An absolute gem just off the beaten track . The rooms are delightful, the food exquisite. Stay here for warm welcome and a great nights sleep. Then landlord is a character with the gift of the gab. Ideal for butter mere and honister pass . You cannot go wrong!

A very enjoyable stay as part of a work-arranged outing that felt more like leisure. Mick was a very friendly host, welcoming us in when we arrived a half hour early. I was coming down with a cold on the day we arrived but a nice hot shower, hearty dinner, pub quiz, comfortable bed and big breakfast saw me right.... More

A hidden gem, luxurious rooms, giant portions of delicious food, pampered and fussed over by mick. After a long day it's a perfect haven. Pummelled in a gloriously hot shower, sleep of the righteous in a heavenly bed and a feast for a meal. All done better cheaper tastier than a chain or budget hotel.

Lunch here today - chosen from the mini menu which is smaller portions which is available every day. Good friendly service and good food. The landlord has an amazing collections of teapots everywhere in the bar. He told us that the cleaner had counted them once and there were over a thousand! Excellent value - 2 of us with 2... More

We spent a night in our motorhome in the car park as part of the brit stop deal. on arrival we were welcomed at the door and introduced. The evening meal was fantastic home cooked, value for money. The place was immaculate. The breakfast was as good as the evening meal. Mick (the owner) was extremely friendly and a real... More

Had a splendid visit and stay here. A true gem and so enjoyed our time here. Quite, relaxing, very modern, clean, well-kept and very accommodating. The bed & Breakfast is down a historic feeling old road - tucked nicely into the country side with a homey feeling to it. It offers a wonderful restaurant that is part of the inn.... More
