                                  Perfect Nostalgic Historical overnight venture. Love the animals specially The Pub Donkey " Mrs Bo Jangles". The Owners and Staff very warm and welcoming. Home away from Home, just a pity its so close to The Highway..

                                  Renovate the whole place. Moldy smell. Advertising for 5star. Not up to standard. Personnel very friendly and charming

                                  We had a lovely overnight stay. Children loved the garden, and room very comfortable.
