We were welcomed with a delicious afternoon tea, our room was spotless, tea & coffee plentiful. Parking on site, (brilliant) and close to all amenities, shops, cafes and restaurants. Breakfast was cooked to order, very tasty. Staff could not have been more attentive. This was home from home. Hope to visit Nick & Cheryl in the near future.

Everything we could have wanted and more. Comfortable, clean, friendly. Well situated for walking to restaurants and shops nearby. Breakfast in the conservatory was a lovely start to our days, with good menu choices and all freshly cooked. Great location for exploring the beautiful surroundings too. Hope to return and stay longer next time.
