Hamish stayed for a couple of nights in April 2010. We had the downstairs room so Hamish didn’t have to use the stairs. He had free run of the fully enclosed yard and garden during his stay – but couldn’t manage the steps up to the garden anyway (Ozy, the resident Black Lab and other dog guests had a wonderful time). Our room was comfy with a good sized en-suite. Both people and dog needs were well provided for – we both had biscuits for example! Breakfasts were excellent – superb locally sourced ingredients with different style eggs and sausages on the two mornings. The usual range of cereals and juices were available but, on the first morning, this was added to by Furmity. This was quite exceptional – and may have been worth the visit on its own! Ian and Lynne serve this regularly – but not every day, so if you particularly want to try it you may need to speak with them the night before. We ate in one evening too – a Mediterranean themed meal with a similarly themed quiz to think about between courses (we got the tie break question right – but weren’t in the play off anyway). The meal included Focaccia bread, mushroom tortellini, Maiale al Latte and rhubarb and Amoretti crumble – all very good. The crumble was superb. The risotto with the Maiale al Latte (pork) was very highly commended by another guest with specialist knowledge. Ian also runs a micro brewery and the CAMRA experts spoke highly of the porter, bitter and lager – we enjoyed the latter two and, again, respect the superior knowledge of the CAMRA guests. We briefly explored the surrounding countryside and coast (10 miles away) and recognised there’s much to recommend them. By now you might have realised we liked this a lot!
