This was one of a few stopping points between London and Yorkshire. Loved the countryside and the villages we encountered on the narrow roads that were interesting to navigate. A warm welcome at the end of a day's travel with a cup of tea and a comfortable room. Delicious breakfast got us off to a good start the next day. Neat and clean and lots of character. Obviously more than a business, with such gracious hospitality, a beautiful courtyard and lovely gardens and thoughtfully decorated rooms. Sorry we couldn't stay longer than one night--we left feeling very relaxed!
