A genuinely warm welcome from Ruth and Ian at the Old Croque. The room was lovely, spacious, clean and comfortable. Our room overlooked the road so nothing special there. But the lounge has the most incredible view over the valley and you could spend hours in this room, lounging on the comfy sofas and eating Ruth's home made scones. Breakfast...
