          Unfortunately I'm gluten and dairy intolerant. The menus look great but don't show allergens - thought it was now the law. I'll admit this usually puts me off going to new places. Any info on how well they cope with allergies and intolerances?

          I can't give you a price - you need to contact Windlestraw. I can confirm that the room rates we were quoted were from £240 to £280 per night.
