The welcome was lovely, we were shown to our room and then invited to the breakfast room for tea and homemade cake -... More

Went here with my parents who have stayed here previously. I was in the single room, which has its own sink and access to a bathroom across the hall. (You are provided with a dressing gown in case you need it). I chose not to store my belongings in the bathroom though, as it only locks from the inside. The... More

We booked a king room and very much enjoyed our stay. Unfortunately due to traffic we arrived rather late, but Ian was on hand to meet us and show us to our room. The decor of room 5 was very nice - shutters on the windows, a nice carpet and lovely furnishings. I must say however, as we had paid... More

We were in the ground floor front bedroom which was lovely and spacious with twin beds (which become a king size when put together). We received a lovely welcome, very clean room and en-suite could not fault a thing. Really lovely cooked breakfast and cereal, toast,... More
