We stayed in a lovely little lodge with all the facilities we needed and more. The lodges had fridge micro wave tv dvd player etc. We were provided with bread fruit juice butter jams biscuits milk coffee it really did far exceed expectation and great value for money. Beaut location staff friendly. will stay again.

Although we had visited the John Thompson on several previuos occasions and been impressed by the qulity of food and the service, on this occasion we were disappointed. Friends enquired, when booking a table, if turkey and Christmas pudding would be on the menu. They were told "Yes." On arriving a satifactory table had not been reserved for us. The... More

I visited The John Thompson for a lunchtime carvary with friends after a recommendation. The pub is great with open fires and friendly staff. The carvary was lovely, the meat was well cooked and the vegetables were great. It is well worth a visit and next time will be sampling some of the beers!

Lovely little self-catering cottage. Living room with a well-equipped kitchen (bread, milk, jam, butter, olive oil, salt, pepper, cutleries, pots and pans, microwave, fridge - all you'll need). Comfortable and cozy bedroom with a lovely view of the open field. Very much enjoyed our stay. However, reception is not open between 3 - 6 pm and that can create some... More

Stayed here with my wife just after the wedding to get away and it was great! The hampers you get are great and they'll replenish things from it as and when needed, it was nice that we were left to ourselves and we were not too fair from the local attractions. Will definitely return!

My husband and I visited recently for our 1st wedding anniversary. Beautiful log cabins with everything you need and great value for money. All staff are very welcoming and the roast beef Sunday dinner was amazing. Can't wait to visit again :)

From our very arrival to our departure we could not have been made to feel more welcome. Staff, and in particular the owner, were excellent in all aspects. We could not find anywhere in the vicinity for the price and felt that it was excellent value for money. The pub was delightful and the lunches that we had were great... More
