    Brilliant venue, the hot tub was fantastic. We really needed a break away from it all and that's exactly what we got. We will definitely go again!

    Great place to stay. Can be a place to hide away and relax or use as a base for the surrounding area. We did a bit of both

    A warm welcome awaited us when we arrived and a fond farewell when we left. The Den is a lovely escape, not quite what we expected, but we really enjoyed it all the same and will definitely be back. The owners couldn’t have been more helpful.
