In my last review I gave it a one star rating,,,, this was a mistake and was definitely meant to be five stars so sorry if you were confused. I stayed with 5 colleagues and all had good reports of their rooms and stay.

Stopped on the way to Appledore (Devon). Arrived during the afternoon, parked outside the room, and we were approached by a lady (turned out to be the owner) asking if we needed a drink. Very soon we had 2 pints of excellent beer. The room itself was marvellous - very spacious with a huge bed. Dinner was excellent, although portions...

Only down side for me was the wet room floor! Remember to take your towel from the bed before entering the wet room. I had to go back for mine and...

We went there specifically to see the entertainment offered, and without doubt the Acoustic Strawbs last Friday (15th April) were well worth the travel, The food before the gig was well presented and tasted great, served in a reasonable time, not to expensive at all, considering its generous portions. We followed this up the following week with another trip from...
