I stayed here for the weekend and arrived early evening. Our room was on the top floor and was very nice, had plenty of room and was very well equipped. The breakfast was very nice and nothing was too much trouble for the owner. Would definitely recommend and will definitely use this place again.

The Pig of Lead has an interesting history and features lots of pigs. We were made very welcome and had a nice room with all the necessary facilities. Breakfast is excellent. Can be noisy in the morning with quarry lorries. It is well placed to visit all the attractions of this beautiful area.

This is the second time I've visited and once again it was a perfect visit from start to finish. Julie couldn't be a better host. The room was warm, spotlessly clean and had the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Breakfast is amazing (perfectly cooked eggs) and Julie has lots of information about things to do in the...
