It seems superfluous to add to all the other brilliant reviews. Nothing is too much trouble for The Ants Nest team, from the welcome on day one to the tears when we left. They provided gluten free for one, custard for another, fresh ginger tea...More

I would also say that some places recommendations on tips are quite high, others less so. Ants is on the high side, but that said we tipped on the high side here as they are so lovely.
