Lovely location. Excellent service.
 Reviewed by Chris Evans over a year ago

Very pleasant stay in a beautiful environment.
 Reviewed by Annelise Ilderton over a year ago

We enjoyed the stay. We have 2 complaints - one despite making the booking as a honeymoon couple we were given 2 single beds pushed together not a nice way to start a honeymoon and we were freezing cold during the night. My second complaint is that during our evening meal on Sunday children were given the run of the upstairs area thumping away spoiling an excellent meal. The staff were very good food breakfast and dinner were excellent and the value great.
