A first visit to The Rock, but I would hope not the last. We have had 3 nights in this excellent B&B (we being one couple with 3 spaniels, and our friends stopped there for 2 nights with their spaniel). They really were dog freindly, and even topped up the dog's water bowl we had left there when making up the room so that there was fresh water for the dogs on our return.
The setting was ideal for walking in the forest and the owners are happy to give guidance on the best routes (most interesting, most accessible, shortest, longest etc.), and on good places to eat. One one morning two of our party had to be out before breakfast, so they took the time to make up some bacon butties we could take for them when we met up later. Nothing was too much trouble.
I could say that it was so bad that I couldn't possibly recommend it, but if I did it would only be to try make sure that it wasn't fully booked the next time I want to go there.
