I stayed here en route to and from Scotland, reason?.....hotels in Scotland more than doubled their prices during the Commonwealth Games!!!
I am glad I did, because as a longer than expected drive occurred, it meant I discovered a lovely venue as a base where I will return with my wife and tour the Hadrian's wall country and the Lakes!
It is set in a very quiet village, in fact ZERO traffic noise.....staff welcome you with broad genuine smiles and the rooms are lovely, food is great and the olde world charm of the beamed pub/restaurant area is wonderful.
Comfy beds, excellent WiFi good signal in other words!
Only down side for me was room 5 only had a bath, the shower was attached to the taps of the bath and therefore impossible to have a stand up shower.....you do have to kneel in the bath and manoeuvre with one hand...not great however the bath was wonderful. Maybe all rooms do have showers? worth asking if you are infirm for example. But I had a 4 poster!...AND a great TV......and room big enough to play 5 a side in!
