It is ideally located for both the dams and the kite feeding farm and the surrounding scenery is breath taking.

Took grandchildren, son and sister here for Sunday lunch. It was superb, lovely proper food, good sized portions, and ideal for me two vegatarian options without cheese. Liz and her husband were very welcoming, the staff were professional and polite, it is most definitely worth a visit and we will be going again. Janine

Our family stayed here for two nights in two rooms. Kev and Liz are very nice. They are welcoming, suggested places to visit and activities within the vicinity suitable for our family. Throughout our interactions with them, we could feel their sincerity and warmth. The breakfast and meals were filling and lovely too. Whatever dietary restrictions that you may have,...

Amazingly friendly doggie hotel. Little buffy schnauzer made herself right at home in room number 9. Really friendly staff welcomed our little dog with open arms. Fab breakfast and let Buffy in the bar with us.

Sunday Lunch was OK and it needed to be after waiting an hour and a half for our starter, but then our mains came first the starters having been forgotten. It was a birthday lunch, so it was very disappointing.
