I booked an "economy" room and was delighted by its quaint comforts. The room was in the loft under the thatch and I awoke in the morning to the smell of bacon and coffee. The evening meal was great and the staff very willing to accommodate my allergies which makes things so much more comfortable for me.

We had pre booked in for dinner, but arriving so late we understood that we may have missed it. We where shattered and the very warm welcome was appreciated. We went to...

Well located on a hill not far from town centre and close to restaurants and other amenities. Lovely "country" outlook and atmosphere, clean and comfortable room [with en-suite bathroom with shower], desk, TV and other conveniences. Staff very friendly and helpful and breakfast was excellent. Would certainly stay again if business so required.
