Great pub / b&b, we just stayed for 1 night and had a fab time in the room at the front. The bed was v comfy!! Lovely products in the bathroom too, locally sourced I believe.

I took my mum out for dinner here. The food was great and the outdoor area looked really lovely even if it was a bit cold when we went. Apparently the view during the day is really nice, I hope to see it next time I'm back in the area.

We had a wonderful time in the mason Arms, returning for our 7 year wedding anniversary after spending our honeymoon here also. We had a lovely mini break away and look forward to returning in the future.
