    Very helpful staff, however the accomodation is quite tired and needs renovation. The meal at the inn was below standard, yet the breakfast was lovely. If you are looking for a very peaceful restful place to be, this is good as there's not much to...More

    Very sad to hear you were disappointed in our meals. The accommodation is old english and it fits a market which is reasonably priced. Summer is definitely the best time to view our region and enjoy its beauty.

    Tidy, simple accomodation. 8/10 - in winter the "open-plan shower" was too draughty for me. Great location. Real comfy unit. Classic Inn look. Separate restaurant & bar which is nice for little families. Breakfast was included, 10/10!

    Thank Retta M
