So glad we stayed here on our Coast 2 Coast cycling trip. it's just a couple of minutes' walk from the pub but it feels like you're in the middle of nowhere, with stunning views, absolute peace and quiet, and plenty of room for bike maintenance!
We had an ensuite twin room, plus bathroom (v. glad to have a bath after a day's cycling), relaxing lounge, and kitchen. It was more like staying in a self-catering cottage - except with someone to do the catering in the morning!
Breakfast was the best we had on the trip, shame we were too full to enjoy the homemade bread. Would go back to this charming cottage in a shot!
