Thank you for a fantastic weekend. The Hotel is dog friendly, rooms are spacious clean and comfortable and set in lovey grounds and the staff are very friendly. The food was great and set menu was good value. Hotel is an ideal location, away from the main road and easy walking distance to the mill, canal and high street.
We celebrated my sons 21st birthday the weekend 27/28 June and booked 4 rooms. We stayed in the oaks cottage, this is spacious and has a separate kitchen & lounge room with sofa bed. This was ideal for all the party guests to meet and have tea & cake. However, the carpet could do with a steam clean, but this probably gets dirty due to direct access from car park and being dog friendly.
Overall highly recommended and We will definitely come back.
