We thoroughly enjoyed three nights' dinner bed and breakfast at this beautifully situated hotel. We were in a cottage at the back and so could go in and out without going through the main building. Our room and bathroom gave plenty of space. The distancing requirements had been well thought out everywhere. Breakfast and dinner were delicious with an extensive menu. Staff were attentive and worked very hard
