“Thank you for our stay last week. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay but, as returning guests, that was never in question!

The rooms were very comfortable and clean with carefully considered toiletries and accessories. We really appreciated the fan and thoughtful touches such as the biscuits with the tea tray. 😊

The breakfast choice was amazing, with something to suit everyone. We have stayed in a fair number of hotels and B and Bs but your breakfast surpasses them all.

You have a super business in a wonderful place with excellent access to walking in the surrounding area.

Thank you for making us feel so welcome. You are excellent hosts.”



We really enjoyed our stay with you over the weekend.  Often it’s those seemingly little touches that add to the quality of a stay such as the organic herbal teas, the gorgeous Pure Lakes products, the fluffy white towels, using local produce for a wonderful breakfast and the welcome on arrival to name but a few.

We hope to return one day and will recommend you.

Ps. The quirky little wooden mouse made us smile too!
