Spent 3 nights in one of the river rooms recently and whilst the bedrooms are nice the carpets of a light colour are very dirty and either need changing or deep cleaning! I also had a single bed with in my opinion a much too light quilt for the winters nights and being a restless sleeper was constantly fighting to... More

In the evening great party in the bar with an auction of the leeks and other produce, disco and dancing. Terrific country... More

We were given a good cheery welcome and shown straight to our clean, comfortable and cosy room with a river view. We enjoyed a good, hearty, supper with a well chosen house wine at a very... More
