Great destination which needs organisation.
The fox inn is a wonderful place. Well in the country making it quiet and peaceful but lively particularly at weekends. The food was top rate. Unfortunately the organisation was somewhat erratic especially at breakfast when utensils, bowls, plates missing from tables and the buffet running out of juices and coffee for later sittings. Notwithstanding the staff were very quick to supplement when asked but at an establishment of this quality you don't expect to ask. Also odd but the dining room was not opened throughout our stay and on Thursday and Friday people were being turned away. Lastly the dinner/lunch menu was limited to the same dishes every day we were there with only limited antipasto specials. Notwithstanding this we all had a great time.

It was all a bit odd. We were given initially keys to 2 rooms and the rooms were not made up. Finally the third room was offered but no keys. The next day the room was not cleaned, towels changed and we had to ask for more tea and coffee and wash up our cups. Breakfast was tasty and room warm. Staff friendly.

Friendly location
Pretty location and very friendly, helpful staff. Food good and breakfasts plentiful. Room a little bit worn plus the Bed was spacious but not very comfortable so needed an extra quilt to pad it out, but loved the cuddly Fox left on the bed and the staff were extremely helpful/tried to make things right.
