10/10 Exceptional

Our room was super cute, though the lack of coverings in bathroom and entry door could be better as they put your privacy at risk. The staff were superb, very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was excellent, well done to the young chef! Couldn't have picked a better place to stay, we highly recommend this character filled hotel.

Excellent highly recommend
The setting was tranquil. The accomodation and pub were both beautiful and immaculate. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was very good . The complimentary snack box with crisps cake apple and mineral water was unexpected and thoughtful touch. Am planning a return trip later in the year
