Greeted by a lovely friendly couple, Chris and Lindy. Shown to a forest view room, which had recently been refurbished to a very good standard. It had a kingsize bed, squishy pillows and good quality bedding. An adequate en-suite shower room. I thought the shower gel/shampoo/conditioner dispenser on the wall was a great idea.
We both had a full English breakfast the next morning, which we couldn't fault. They use locally sourced ingredients of a very high quality. Delicious..... but there were other options. We ate in the breakfast/lounge room, but Lindy did say that at warmer times of the year, you would be permitted to eat at one of the tables in the garden. I can imagine that would be a treat to start your day, with such a fantastic view.
I would highly recommend The Rock.
