I had the most relaxing and accommodating stay at the Stanley house. It is in the perfect location for walkers, with many different walks all easily accessible. There is a stream right behind the house next to very well kept gardens. It is absolutely picturesque with the backdrop of mountains and valleys. The moment I opened the car door, all I could here was the sound of the river, nothing else.
The rooms are neat and tidy with a very comfortable bed and nice warm shower. The house itself is very warm and cozy.
What I have been most impressed by is the friendliness of the staff. Lettie who manages the house was waiting for me even though I had arrived at 12am. She was very kind and welcoming, showing me around, and telling me to treat it like it was my own home. She even offered to fix me some food. The next day she had prepared a lovely breakfast and also advised me on walks to take. She even loaned me a map as I was looking to buy one. All in all it was my perfect mix of attentiveness without the formality of a hotel. Staff weren't always around but there were phones everywhere that automatically dialled a number to the sister inn where you could be in contact with a staff member.
Stanley House truly is a gem and I will not hesitate to stay there again. Beautiful countryside without the hoards of tourist and one of the funniest and kind managers.
