We stayed at the Leconfield for one night - we were a party of 8 so there were only a couple of others there at the same time as us. The reason we chose it was that the hosts were so helpful and friendly when we first enquired. It was midwinter so we planned to spend most of our time inside and wanted somewhere we felt welcome.
The rooms were lovely and the whole place looked like it had been freshly decorated, it was so clean. Everything was very well run, the food was great and they were very helpful in accommodating all that we needed. It's a short taxi ride from the end of the train line and right on top of the hill above the sea with beautiful walks all around. Highly recommended for a lovely quiet weekend.
