We made reservations online for String of Horses, based on reviews. We were not disappointed. What a find! Our room was located directly over the pub, and even as a light sleeper, I slept like a baby. The room was clean, comfortable, and roomy. Colin and Jill were perfect host and hostess (even the following morning when Jill was dressed... More

We arrived at The String of Horses at 4pm just in time for check-in (latest we have had and earliest check-out, but wasn't a problem for us), really friendly welcome from Colin the owner. This is quite a remote accommodation, but several lovely walks. We had dinner in the pub on our second night and it was delicious - excellent... More

We found this on Groupon, and I'm glad we did! I feel like it gave us a good taste of the area. The girl who ran breakfast (which was good!) was very sweet, and her son was adorable. I wish we came down and had drinks the night before, but we were too tired.

Just come back from a 2 night stay at this place and what an amazing weekend it's been. It was quite busy due to a beer festival and live music both nights, but from the minute we stepped in there we were made to feel welcome. We arrived quite late and the place was in full swing but the staff... More

We rode through to here on our coast2coast bike ride. Good place - good food and friendly staff. Very friendly atmosphere and accommodating host. Landlord allowed us to store our bikes in a secure area - which was really useful. Room was nice and spacious.

Just spent the weekend in this fabulous wee hotel courtesy of a wowcher deal. Food was fantastic and well presented. Drink flowed freely. The owner, Colin, was very welcoming and all the staff were lovely. We had steak the first night, cooked to perfection. The second night was just as good and the fajitas were great. There was nothing to... More
