Amazing stay!
Amazing stay! Room was spacious, clean and lovely. Large bath. Lovely view of the square and church! Staff are very friendly and accommodating! Food was absolutely delicious with large portions, we had breakfast included but also had dinner which is very reasonably priced! Nice to sit on the sofas right by the open fire if you're having a drink! Great location as set right on the high street and lovely walk to Flatford. We will definitely be back! The only thing to mention was the traffic noise, we were woken at 4am with people parked on the high street (maybe deliveries?) and an unusual amount of traffic going by at that time, however, this wouldn't deter us from returning!
