We stayed one night, and the accommodation, was excellent. It had been recently 'done up' and everything was brand new and very, very clean. The bathroom was to die for, after a long 14 mile walk, it was pure heaven, to go into such a brilliant shower to freshen up. We were made to feel very welcome. Evening meals were not available, so we walked the 400 yards up the hill to the recommended Barley Mow, where we had a very nice meal, and were made welcome by the 'locals'. Unfortunately we missed the 'Hen Olympics' which had been the previous week, but they did have an amazingly good band on.
Back at the Fountain, breakfast was good. Everything was very clean, and the friendly people of both the Fountain and the Barley Mow made it a very very good 'stop over' place. Might even go back next year to try and catch the 'Hen Olympics'......................
