We have so many, we have visitors staying with us from all over the world, from the lady who travelled to stay at Dulrush as she was on a genealogy tour and visited her Caldwell ancestors estate, to the group of french fishermen who visit year on year in search of that elusive pike, and have caught some great ones.

Our traditional cooked breakfast always goes down a treat, but we also have freshly baked scones, wheaten and treacle bread daily. Freshly made blackcurrant jam is on the menu in the height of the summer when berries from the owners blackcurrant trees are abundant with juicy berries.
