This was our 3rd visit in three years and was as good as ever. We stayed for 5 nights - wanted to stay longer but no room at the inn it appeared as they are so popular. We wanted to go in early March but had to wait until April before they had a room for 5 nights on the trot!
Once again the food was outstanding. It's vital that you eat early in the evening [6.30 p.m. start] so as to leave time to digest the meal before tackling the great breakfast. I'm afraid that with this type of fare there's not much scope to sample the local food as you'd never cope with more than the odd cake and a coffee throughout the day!
The Bridge House is an excellent base for walking - most [but not all] residents are there for the walking and most are return visitors. With just 3 visits under our belt we were mere novices compared with many who stay there.
The hotel isn't really suitable for young children although they would be most welcome I feel. It's really a place for couples and small celebratory parties of all ages and booking is essential.
Cost? About £130 per room per night depending on time of year and length of stay.
Can't wait to return in 2013......
