due various things, I forgot week I had booked but the owner and Sykes rebooked me at no cost and no hassle. Not what I had expected from business these days.
Found it easily but the entrance is easy to miss and went past it a few times. Had a warm welcome. Off road parking good. Nice kitchen and great country views from the dining room. Lounge comfortable and cosy. Good size bedrooms with very comfortable beds. Basin in bathroom was small but good bath and shower. Lovely garden and conservatory for peace and quiet.Can hear the whistle from the steam railway nearby.
Convenient access to main roads and motorway to get about.All the main supermakets convenient.

It was well looked after and clean. It suited our needs as a base to explore. The pub down the road was good. Owner and his wife very welcoming and helpful. A good walk was quite close by.

On arriving, the house was spotless and welcoming. There is a large back garden to take advantage of and the views out the back are lovely.
Sightseeing in the area is easy as motorway and rural roads are very easy to access.
