My self my husband and son joined a moveable feast of friends and family at the Crewe and Harpur over the half term week. We hired the cottages as well as the pub. This proved great as we had a range of ages and requirements within the group. The cottages were largely given over to those with young children who needed some peace and quiet of an evening, but the baby monitor still worked if mum and dad wanted to come across to the main building once the little ones were abed. The rooms in the pub were lovely, kitted out to very high standard and the bathrooms were gorgeous. We did have a couple of issues with the heating at the very top of the building, but the guys who run the place were very courteous and responsive whenever we needed them and sorted out our issues. The kitchen in the Crewe is a bit of a dinosaur but big enough to cater to a full complement of guests, at one point I think we had 33 people sitting down. The pub itself is great and everyone loved being able to pour their own pints. The area is very picturesque and there are some challenging walks right outside your door with access to a couple of flatter bycicle trails with beautiful scenery a short drive away. Overall I would definitly recommend it and the folk who run it could not have been more welcoming or helpful.
