We stayed here whilst walking the Coast to Coast with our Border Terrier. We were met with a warm, friendly welcome. Our suitcase was already in our room awaiting our arrival and the room was a generous size with a good sized en-suite. We were offered tea and scones once we had had time to sort ourselves out, which was very welcome. I have wheat and dairy intolerances and Ann chatted to me to ensure that my dietry needs would be catered for. We were booked in for evening meal and I never manage to eat three courses - one reason because I have a small appetite and another reason because there is never three courses which cater for my intolerances. Ann had catered for me perfectly even though there was only one dish/option provided for each course. The food was delicious and very welcome after a 14 mile stint. Again, the breakfast was well presented and the staff were all very friendly. They only thing that would have been a preference for us was to have had a television in the room as opposed to having to go down to the television lounge as it would have been nice to have "chilled out" in comfy repose whilst watching some television after a tiring day.
