    Breakfast was excellent. Staff really welcoming & friendly, and great to chat with. Loved the history of the building and all the characters who had stayed there - Lord Nelson, Charles Dickens among them. The village had a friendly feel about it, lovely small church a short walk away, and we loved the old red telephone booth that had been turned into a facility for a defribrilating machine! We noticed this in other nearby villages as well.

    The en suite shower room was very cramped. The "4 acres of grounds" weren't "grounds" but hilly farmland divided into 3 or 4 paddocks for sheep, horses and geese. I was very disappointed at that as I was looking forward to walks around the 4 acres. The big steps around the building were a challenge for me as I have mobility issues - you can't avoid them as all communal areas are on different levels. Warning to anyone with mobility issues, or wheelchair users, this property isn't suitable.
