Lovely and homely. The home cooked food was really good. Although there is a fixed menu the meals were well balanced. (We stayed three nights). I really appreciated the trouble taken over the vegetarian option. The mint chocolates provided with coffee were a nice touch. Our room was very comfortable, the ensuite bathroom was brand new. The packed lunches included a savoury and a sweet filing plus fruit and a piece of home made cake leaving just enough room for tea and scones after a day's walk. There are two lounges and a bar so it is possible to find a quiet corner for a read in the evening. Susan and her staff were extremely helpful and will accommodate any reasonable requests. It was good to note that dogs were made welcome. A thoughrouly enjoyable three days!
