Stayed here 1st May bank holiday during the C2C run, after having to postpone the first attempt due to severe Easter weather (on the invaluable advice of David which was very much appreciated!). Greeted by both David and Irene with friendly smiles and a warm welcome. Extremely helpful, welcoming and some good home cooked food with a hearty breakfast which sets you up for the next days ride. Would recommend it to anyone.
