We booked a room for the 4 of us, that is for my wife and I, dog and 4 month year old!! The hotel is set in a lovely 10 acres with a public pathway off the edge for further walking so ideal for those keen on a stroll or with dogs or kids who want some exercise.
Beware there is a stream through the garden, being a former Mill, which you will need to supervise your kids with.
Outside their is a lovely terrace to sit on, should the weather be warm enough.
A lot of the hotel is quite old in terms of decor and condition. Our room, was cosy and quite out of date. It was fit for purpose for needs a new bathroom suite as it has ingrained dirt and seemed to be on its last legs. The shower was a dribble at best.
A cot was provided and we found a suitable corner for our dog. The room was boiling and we turned off all the radiators when we arrived. Their is no sound insulation as at night I could hear the someone snoring above us and also whenever they went to the toilet we could hear everything! I guess they could hear our baby crying as well....
The restaurant is quite dated, but the lounge and bar are not and have been renovated well and this is where we based ourselves. Dogs are allowed everywhere except the restaurant which was great.
The food was good and the added extras of chocolates or cookies were much appreciated. For breakfast they put us in the bar, despite having to get it ready for lunch was appreciated so our dog could join us too.
Staff very friendly and helpful.
All in all, if they refurbish the rooms and restaurant, when they have the finances it will go from good to excellent.
It was amazing value for money.

As you mention, we have refurbished the bar & lounge area already and I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed using these spaces. The restaurant & the rooms (including bathrooms) are most certainly the next on the agenda but as you can imagine, to refurbish the rooms will take some time. We plan to do one corridor at a time.
We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future so you can see the further improvements we have planned.
