The rooms are fine, a bit small but clean and well kept. Perfect... More

Stayed here weekend of the 23rd January. Our room was beautiful with a 4 poster bed. Very clean and loved the vintage furniture. Breakfast was brilliant, very good choice of fruit juices, cereals and fresh fruit as well as your choice of a cooked breakfast. Will definitely be returning!
