"We wanted a complete 'chill out' so really loved the rural location and were not really looking for lots of 'things to do' but I'm sure there were lots of local attractions nearby."
7th April 2015, guest from Peterborough:
"Phil and his family were very welcoming ( their daughters are a credit to them!) and there was a lovely ambience to the whole place. The accommodation is of a very high standard and kept immaculately clean. The food we had in the restaurant on the Friday evening was delicious and the breakfasts were 'top notch'. There was a slight 'misunderstanding' with the final checkout bill but I'm sure this was just down to human error due to being really busy. We would really like to return here and would highly recommend it. "
