We received a warm welcome and our dog was spoiled by the staff. We were offered use of the private forest area to exercise the dog. The room was immaculate with beautiful wooden furniture. We ate at the pub in the evening which was lovely. Breakfast was plentiful and the staff were so helpful and friendly.
