A most idyllic setting, brilliant hosts and fantastic breakfasts. Anything we needed was provided by Brenda & David - advice on walks and the provision of excellent and informative maps was very much appreciated. The room had everything we needed and after long days exploring the Spa Bath was very welcoming.
The little things always make a difference and after returning soaking wet David was there to retrieve our wet clothing and boots and the next morning they were dry ready for us to go out once more. David's knowledge of the area is outstanding and his recommendations for walks were
All in all excellent 4 day break which was enhanced by our hosts. The standards we encountered were superb - breakfasts were wonderful. Writing this review following our break in February and the little touches on Valentine's day still make us smile - Chocolate hearts, heart shaped lights and more....
We came away fully refreshed and with many pleasant memories - Thank You.
