    We very much enjoyed staying here. It was just what we wanted, and good walking distance to low and high force, with the local shops just 3 miles away.

    Great location, great real fire and excellent views. Great pub 5 mins walk, storage heaters work well but you are responsible for paying for electricity which needs to be taken into account when booking. Overall a great place to stay. Recommended.
