Like the last reviewer, I didn't want to review this after our last stay as I thought we'd found a true gem of a place and I just wanted to keep the secret to ourselves..
Well, we've just returned from our third stay there in 6 months, but I'm prepared to accept other people are allowed to stay there too. Mary, Frankie and their little "team" really do have an idyllic little delight on their hands and everybody should check this place out. The rooms are beautifully decorated and furnished (no remote for our TV but as we were either out walking or downstairs in the pub it hardly mattered..and it's nothing that a quick dig in the other half's ribs can't fix!) and the food great (I don't remember when I had better bacon..and the steak for the evening meal really was lovely).
The real star here, though, is the pub; just two tables for everybody to sit round, which serves to help - if any were needed - the already great atmosphere. The locals really are friendly, and nobody leaves here a stranger or without having had the mick taken. Great beer (really local, micro-brewed stuff), great service, roaring fire in the old range..this place is magnificent.
