We needed to fly to visit this beautiful part of the country,so could not chose our weather. Gales, Snow and Heavy rain. It could not have been a worst choice of weekends (feb 2014). I was not sure to stay here or in a chain hotel about an hour away. We definitely made a great choice. Nothing beats driving into the valley and leaving the car for a complete weekend. The dry room was a saviour - like a sauna our clothes and shoes were dry by next day. A book were you record where you were walking and expected time back was a reassurance someone was looking after you. And a reception room to meet fellow walkers to exchange stories and browse through the old books (even visitors book) and just get a feel of what our ancestors had done in the exact same inn was an added touch. We enjoyed our meals that evening after and our breakfast meals. Especially eating local food was appreciated. The lamb steak actually tasted of lamb and was so full of flavour. The ingredients very fresh. Staff - so so friendly. Unfortunately we need to return (for better weather to complete our planned route).
