Gem of a place
Really comfortable beds. The wine and cheese and then milk and cookies are a really nice touch. We slept in so didn't see the breakfast. It seemed centrally located, I was just there for an overnight but it was really comfortable, and the woman running it when we got in, Carol, was very helpful, I'd definitely go back Oh! And the little sachets of lavender on the bed are a lovely touch!
