“Lovely place, very well located for all the walks in the area. The interior was cute and well matched and it was probably the best equipped little place we’ve been to. We took our 23 month old and it was appropriate for him too. The place would be well suited for someone who struggled with mobility too. We’d visit again if coming back to the Gorge!”
