    4/5 Good

    • Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    Lovely in the summer

    Pros: modern, clean, spacious room & bathroom; pleasant view; good quality breakfast (including vegetarian ‘full English’). Cons: the room was in a wooden annexe, accessed via the car park (not so nice in the dark and/or rain); cushions (not laundered) on pillows (laundered) - a pet hate; grumpy breakfast server on the second morning refused to make me a hot chocolate (available on the first day!).

    A good find

    Super place to stay, quiet and peaceful except for the occasional train. Unfortunately the chef was off on the evening we stayed. The food was passable. Breakfast was fine. The room was weĺl appointed with a comfortable bed.
