Lovely stay, great breakfast and room

Great stay, friendly staff, lovely breakfast and wonderful room. Staff really went out of the way to help, we arrived really late and it was no problem. They also made us a pack breakfast when we left too early for breakfast. Nice rural location. Had a meal in the evening which was superb
