Walking break
A really pleasant hotel to stay, all the staff were very friendly and also very helpful. The food and ale were very good, especially the breakfast, although slightly different due to Covid. All precautions taken by the staff and we felt very safe. Lovely beer garden. Great location for walking would recommend.
