Mr and Mrs Caunter with whom we have already stayed several times are nice and helpful host. The food which is offered (breakfast/evening meal) is delicious. The rooms are clean, tidy and comfortable. We will surely stay there again.

I have other food intolerances, but nothing was too much trouble for them to...
