It was very clean, homely and accommodating. All the staff were helpful and friendly. We stayed six up in a comfortable room. Breakfast was included which was simple but very needed. Overall an excellently happy time. Definitely keen to come back. Thank you!

Hi Andrea, thanks for your message. We don't have air conditioning, generally not needed as evenings are usually quite bearable even in summer. We have plenty of parking though. Kind regards, Hayley
