What a gem of a place, we needed somewhere close to Cofton holiday site as we had family staying there and although we only live 30 minutes away staying at the Croft saved taxis etc and Cofton was a short 10 minute walk away. Colin and Ken run the place with Colin being the front of house man and "entertainer"...
