What a great place to stay, but how impossible to find... So: if you decide to go: print out the itinerary and DON'T ask the pub that is just 300 yards away but didn't seem to be aware that the Manor House is just down the little road...
But, once we had found it, we forgot our search straight away because we were welcomed by Dave as we were the lost son (and his wife and 3 daughters) himself. We went straight up to the pub, to enjoy the summer garden and a pint and the great food they serve there. Also a good place to go with kids, they have the best fish and chips and serve them in half portions.
We stayed in the family room, which is great, even with 3 kids. The bathrooms are a bit small and could use some updating (and beware of your head, the door post is really low if you're 1.86) but all that is compensated by the kindness and perfect service of the owners, who really enjoy having guests and have good tips for things to do in the environment. We went canoeing on the canal which was lovely.
Definitely a place to come back to and to recommend.
