Great Place to Stay.. and Nice Support

5 of 5
We stayed for 4 nights. Very comfortable place. Cathy has set everything ready for us. Great view of the river from the cabin. My family enjoyed cooking overseeing the river :) :) :) and short Lynway walk is beautiful. not to forget, it was given to us very clean condition. Additionally the multi colour lit christmas tree was fantastic addition to the hall. Superb set beds, spotless clean kitchen and toilets, easy set up heating, comfy sofas and free Wi-Fi. excellent rate as well. Highly recommended for everyone. Thumbs up :) :) :)

winter walking weekend

4 of 5
we had a good weekend, good location close to town. nice woodburner, well stocked kitchen and nice to have milk and rock cakes left for us. comfortable beds, the only problem were the radiators on the top floor which didn't work but hopefully that could be easily rectified.
