Just to stay how much we enjoyed our stay with you and we felt nothing was too much trouble for your staff.  It is wonderful to find that attitude these days!  
You seem to have coped admirably with the strange circumstances around Covid and congratulate you all on ploughing through these difficult times with such a positive outlook.  We would certainly book again if we have to return to the area. Excellent to have  fridge in the room, too, so you have covered everything one would need; including a comfortable and clean room looking on to open fields.  Delightful.

We stayed overnight in the car park, in our campervan. The food was excellent and log burner kept us warm when we came in January. Staff were polite and attentive. Would definitely visit again.
