We stayed here 37 years ago on honeymoon and have visited a few times since but had stopped as it had become run down. It is an ideal romantic destination.
In 2006 the new owners took it on and have renovated it to a very high standard the restaurant has now a Michelin star. The rooms are filled with antique furniture comfy bed and best stocked mini bar I have ever seen.The tea and coffee tray included a café tier and fresh coffee, teapot, fresh milk in fridge, lemon and lime slices and full ice bucket, bottle of filtered water, homemade brownies and cookies. Quality products in bathroom deep double ended claw feet bath and wet room shower. A private outside seating area with views of sheep grazing and swifts flying over head. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast excellent, No mobile service but can use hotels land line our local call was not charged. Food Devine as was wine, we were given advice on their extensive wine list as we are not experts it was expensive but worth it, as was the strawberry champagne cocktail. Not a beer drinkers pub as only Black sheep bitter available and a couple of lagers (luckily one of my husbands favourite) The bar has mousey Thompson furniture and is very cosy the restaurant intimate. I will definitely be going back although pricy it is worth it for a little bit of luxury spoiling.
