Pete and Sue are wonderful, thoughtful hosts. Nothing is too much trouble for them, they anticipated our needs and did everything they could to make us, and the other guests welcome. The food is just superb, and the scones, well, perfect! The room was very clean and comfortable, I hope we can return.
