Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
A charming pub / restaurant set in a pretty village. Our room was in a converted stable block, situated on the ground floor and giving a view of only the car park. The room was quite small for the price, needed some redecorating, but was okay for a one night stay while travelling.
