WE had a wonderful warm welcome and luckily we were upgraded to a beautiful quirky room, - comfortable, huge bed, great bathroom - and all set in a lovely village. We stayed for dinner which was good but not as outstanding as we had expected...More

I had a hard first day on the Ridgeway and managed to book a last minute room here. What an exceptional place it is. I limped in as though I had been dragged through a hedge backwards, but I was welcomed with friendly smiling faces....More

Even though we were only here one night, it was a perfect stay. Quiet country setting in a lovely English village setting. We will definitely stay here again and explore more of the surrounding area. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was fresh cooked...More
