John, the owner and host, was so helpful about everything! And a consummate professional. He made our stay easy and joyful.

Situated further out from everything and hard for us to find . The entrance was a little spare and echoey with no carpet and darkened floor boards . We were taken to the ‘library’ to check in which for us felt quite uncomfortable and less welcoming given a history of the fireplace isn’t really what tired travellers need to know . The ‘library’ would be better served as a community sitting room with tables and chairs rather than 2 Chesterfield couches facing each other in a quiet cold unwelcoming room. We felt we were to stay in our room or go out as the hosts live downstairs- sorry as the host was lovely but we really felt in the way as guests. The breakfast was impeccable and the presentation was 10/10 . I think if it was ‘welcoming’ from the beginning and given a purpose of the library for the guests rather than a showpiece for the host
