We arrived on Saturday evening to a very warm welcome from Mark the Manager. We were shown to our room (room 6) it had a lovely four poster bed and huge bathroom with a roll top bath, twin sinks and shower. The whole place is decorated lovely and is made to feel like home from home. Downstairs there are 2 living areas where guests can relax in front of the fire, watch a film or just chill. Breakfast was in the new kitchen dining area. The food was delicious. We were very lucky as we were the only ones staying that weekend so we had the run of the place and sneakily checked out each bedroom. I have to say no matter which room we had been given we would not have been disappointed. All in all a fantastic place to stay and we are planning to go back later in the year.
