The place is beautiful done to a very high standard and was spotless so cosy and modern. Everything you could possible need is there we where amazed at all the little details, like a little welcome book with information, a drawer full of places to go, takeaway menus. Things to do like books, cards if you get bored. They have literally thought of everything! I work in a hotel and the standard here and what is offered is above and beyond and even cheaper than most hotels where you get less! On a night you could here a pin drop thats how peaceful it is, its got a shop and a pub less than 5 minutes away and your in the centre of everything, never nothing to go do or see. The owners should be proud because its just wonderful and wish them every sucess in the future never met such a nice couple nothing was too much trouble. The hot tub was wonderful, i am just so glad we found this little gem, because we will be going back! Thank you both!
