We have visited the Brick House many times over the past fifteen years, the most recent was in June 2012, and it is consistently good. The rooms have very comfortable beds and the bathrooms have been upgraded. The towels are top quality - lovely and thick and soft. The breakfasts have plenty of variety and the food is cooked to order. I have always been served the perfect poached egg. The bar is well stocked and it is the only one we have visited where you help yourself and pay for it when you settle your bill. True Old World Charm. The area surrounding the Brick House is both beautiful and peaceful, so much so that we have now moved from Lancashire to live down here. Thank you Christine for all your hospitality. We probably will not need to stay here again but we will certainly recommend you to anyone visiting this area.
