We've not long returned from another visit & I can only really endorse everything said here by others, we have been to Ruthven and stayed in both the Dairy Room and the Tractor Shed a number of times, don't be fooled by the title of the rooms, they are both superb, plenty of room and spotless.
John and Julie are tremendously nice folk and quite rightly very proud of Ruthven Steadings which they renovated/rebuilt from scratch. The breakfast here will take some beating in our opinion, really set you up for the day, beats a hotel breakfast buffet hands down. (Hmmm home baked bread every morning for as much toast as you can eat!)
We stay twice a year and we find it one of the easiest places to relax, there's loads of walks within a short distance and very easy to get around the area.
