Comfortable and reasonable value. Nice village. Staff kept their metaphorical distance a little too much but maybe due to CoVid requirements.

Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Although the pandemic has caused problems there has been time to refresh paintwork, oil furniture and replace corroded fittings. Shower did not work. Bedding was good plus tea/coffee etc. This could be a repeat location with some detail care.
