    Very sad to hear you were disappointed in our meals. The accommodation is old english and it fits a market which is reasonably priced. Summer is definitely the best time to view our region and enjoy its beauty.

    Tidy, simple accomodation. 8/10 - in winter the "open-plan shower" was too draughty for me. Great location. Real comfy unit. Classic Inn look. Separate restaurant & bar which is nice for little families. Breakfast was included, 10/10!
