We unfortunately arrived on the day of lockdown and were not allowed to enter the premises. That wasn’t the problem, getting our money back was! Don’t ever use Expedia and the owners had to be continually chased for my refund. Very disappointing.

The property is quirky..I mean staying a red or green truck as it’s front is different..u open your eyes to mountains as that’s what your bed faces..It also has the best pub attached or near stay. I wish there was a mirror inside room , a microwave especially if you have kids you need one and maybe if the bathroom was attached than keep going to other side but it’s all right. Overall a lovely place

A lovely old country pub. The room was nice and the bed was comfortable. The bar was cosy with a warm fire and the restaurant food was good. It was a very cold night so we were disappointed that the air conditioner worked but provided no actual heat. There were also lots of light bulbs missing making the room darker than necessary.

5/5 Excellent

The place has loads of character with the building dating from the 1850s. The room was clean and large with a large and modern bathroom. We had one of the front rooms with the balcony and a view down the main street. We had a comfortable bed and the place was very quiet at night. The public bar and restaurant is very atmospheric with excellent meals and quick service. Parking right out the front on the street. The only negative was the self serve breakfast in a small kitchen at the back was very limited. Go to the cafe in the service station down the road for better fare.
