Warm welcome on arrival from Steve, tea, coffee & cake served in the sun pavilion. In the morning another warm welcome from Sharon followed by an excellent breakfast. A great location close to the village centre and lovely views of the surrounding areas. Good base for exploring the surrounding walks and sites.
