Lovely comfortable warm and cosy stay. Staff were absolutely sweet and helpful and Derek and Jan welcoming and hospitable. The bar and dining area have fireplaces glowing which cheers things up on a frosty day. Must say the breakfast (we had the traditional) was absolutely superb, perfectly cooked and not at all greasy! Copious amounts of very good coffee were...

We had a 2 night stay while visiting local attractions. The hospitality was always warm and friendly- love the real fires! Accommodation, clean, warm and adequately equipped. However, the superbly stocked bar, friendly staff and top grade restaurant food was an absolute bonus! Thank you so much for a fantastic stay. I'm sure we will return x
