Friendly, comfortable and good value for money
Very friendly reception from Clare and Robert. A very clean and comfortable stay with a great breakfast. There were clear guidelines about the Covid safe meaures being undertaken and precautions like hand sanitiser available. The single room is small but well furnished and decorated and suited my needs well for a good value room for a solo walking weekend. Location is convenient for those reliant on public transport to get around.
