The bedrooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. Tea and coffee making facilities were provided with quality cookie biscuits. The meals were lovely and breakfast was particularly good....

Not lavish, but perfectly fine and clean. Bathrooms are good - ours had a shower but no bath. If that is an issue then specify a bath when you book....
