The star inn offers an excellent service especially for visitors travelling with dogs. We were allocated a room in a barn renovation. It had a clever mix of high specs renovation and rural feel to it. The staff were very generous with their time and attention to us. We ate at the inn on our first night and the menu was top rate which included a majority of fresh locally sourced produce. I would highly recommend for anyone passing through this area. Very good value for money.
