The fairly new owners (4 months) were warm and hospitable and have clearly been working hard towards upgrading the appearance and furnishings. The extra touches, such as the chocolate, tea and cake on arrival were much enjoyed, as was the home baked breads at breakfast.
It was also nice to have the use of a conservatory and lounge, complete with Christmas decorations.
Our room was cozy rather than spacious and the bathroom was small and had insufficient shelving.
Overall we enjoyed our short stay and recommend.
