My fourth consecutive year at Alcuin Lodge and my third year boarding my academic programme here. Yet every year Darren manages, quite improbably, to improve on the excellence of the previous. 2016 was our best stay yet: lovely, impeccably clean and comfortable rooms, wonderfully kind, hospitable and friendly service and then the delicious baked treats which appeared with increasing regularity....
