I stayed here with my sons for 2 nights in October, to do some walking and visit Zip World which is close by. On arrival, the pub looks a bit scruffy on the outside but on the inside, the bedroom and bathroom were spotlessly clean and recently refurbished. It turns out that

we stayed on the camping field at the back of the pub for one night in October and ate in the pub at night. Although very quiet - I suspect because of the time of year and the fact that it wasn't a weekend - the staff were friendly and the food was very good and reasonably

Thank you very much for writing us such a great review and your comments. Feedback is very important to us for us to better service our guests. October/November is typically quiet after the summer rush and quite nice for guests to have the site almost to themselves and have peace and quiet. We look forward to welcoming you again on your return visit soon.

Hi ... no swimming or boats are allowed on the pond as we have quite a lot of wildlife in and around the lake. There are hook ups on both sides of both fields. Although our pet sheep are quite used to our dogs, we do advise our guests to keep their dogs on a lead as if they get into neighbouring fields they may upset livestock.
