Pleasent surroundings loved the barn and garden. Thanks to Peter for the history chats about the past owner during filming. Would have been 5 star but kitchen was not prepared suitably. Left note for manager to explain.

Hi Quaddie, During the daytime, one could walk to the pubs but it is not recommended at night as the roads have no lighting or footpath. There are at least 4 pubs within 10 mins drive though. Check out tripadvisor map of our... More
