This is an excellent place to stay. Rooms were spacious & clean and the staff were lovely; they were all very helpful & friendly which always makes a stay in a hotel much more enjoyable. Thoroughly recommend. We didn't get to see the area as we were going to a wedding but it looked a nice area to explore.

Lovely old barn for a celebration, great food, helpful staff, comfortable bedroom. A very good two night stay. We were there for a funeral party. The food was great and well served, the staff excellent. For those who came by car,there was ample space. The bedrooms are in a pleasant annexe. No lifts,just a staircase. This was not a problem...
