The brilliant thing is that we were able to take our dog with us and she was made extremely welcome being as she is... More

Rather small single room but the welcome I got after turning up muddy and exhausted after a long day walking more than made up for it. Dinner was lovely and a mistake made by the (rather inexperienced) teenage waitress was soon spotted and sorted out by the woman in charge. Good value for money - would stay here again.

On a charity bike ride we needed somewhere to stop outside with bikes and equipment. On arrival a very helpful employee took our water bottles and filled them for us and allowed us to use the facilities. Brilliant customer service.

We enjoyed a night here after a long day on the C2C. Nice evening meal and good service. The packed lunches were hearty for our next walk but the breakfasts a wee bit small. Having porridge as an option would be good too.
