Sandra couldn't do too much to help. Booking.com had messed up our booking (wow!) and eventhough she was on her way out she spent a hour getting us sorted. We very much felt like house guests. The room was a nicely kept room in a friend's house you were visiting. We were disappointed that we had only booked one night... More

Our welcome was a little underwhelming as Sandra seemed a little distracted and we weren't given any details about the accommodation and felt a little uncomfortable until we went and asked. After that though she was very helpful and we had a beautiful breakfast the next day. The doors to the rooms don't have locks but they are very clean... More

We pulled up and I thought MAYBE it was the wrong place but once inside Sandra & Sandy were so friendly and helpful. We had the 4poster bed room and it was really comfortable and the linen on the bed smelt as if they had been dried outside in the fresh air, gorgeous and so white. Bed was really comfy... More

As soon as we arrived we were offered a cup of tea and biscuits etc. We went up to see the room which was absolutely amazing and the views just stunning. It was a very large room, with en-suite facilities and was spotlessly clean. Sandra recommended a couple of places to eat that evening. The breakfast the next morning had... More

We stayed here in the summer some time ago after out camper van spontaneously lost a wheel about 500 yards away.
