Anniversary stay
A wedding anniversary break with a lovely room, tasty bed and breakfast and all at a great price. The staff were friendly yet professional and the rooms spacious and well appointed. The staff, knowing we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, made us feel extra welcome and even prepared us an after dinner cocktail, on the house. We will definitely stay again and make use of the pool and spa facilities.
