We received a very warm welcome from the English owners. Relaxing on the terrace by the riverside with a cold drink was just what we needed after a long drive and we were pleasantly surprised by how many locals seemed to stop by for a drink on their way home at the end of the day.
Our rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable, dinner and breakfast were very good, well worth the short diversion off the A75 and we will stay again next time we are in the area.
