“Fantastic 50th Birthday”

Reviewed 14 Jan 2013

Wanted a little break to celebrate a family members 50th birthday and had a fantastic time. The cleanliness of the place was five star. Very well equiped, had everything we needed. Lovely log fire, kept the place very warm especially in the cold nights. Good size rooms. Fantastic games room, kept all of the family entertained, had hours of fun in there. Lovely area to stay in. Owners very friendly, would recommend to family and friends. Thank you Janet for the birthday beers!

Thank you for your kind words, glad you all enjoyed the Birthday weekend and glad that you enjoyed tasting the local beer! Hope to see you again sometime!
