SUPERB ANNIVERSARY BREAK

LISA East Yorkshire, stayed: October 2018

Husband and I stayed for 2 nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Couldn't fault anything. The staff were lovely and very helpful and friendly. The room lovely and food in the restaurant superb. We enjoyed the pool and the outdoor hot tub. Nice walks around the area (pop and see the alpacas the owner is lovely)

Would definitely stay here again. Not a place for children as nothing for them to do,but this was one of the reasons we loved it. We spoke to a few couples who were on return visits which is always a good sign.

Another lovely stay
Helpful staff - rooms and service excellent
Only complaint is that hot tub in spa is far too small for number of people in spa - some guest in parties monopolize it! Suggest a second one is needed !

Luxury weekend with homely touch

Linda B, stayed: November 2017

When we stayed we were greeted at reception by warm friendly staff . The room we were allocated was on the top floor which aren't the best rooms in the hotel but was still very comfortable. We spent a half hour watching a squirrel feed on the top of a fir tree right outside the room which was sweet. We both came done with the flue while we were there so didn't to justice to the facilities.. Meals were presented lovely would love to go back when our taste buds were normal. Place had a lovely atmosphere. Hopefully we will go back soon
