Already Looking For Excuses To Come Back!

Unbelievable experience.  The Keepers Arms added to our experience for our trip to hike the Stairway to Heaven.The rooms were spotless and comfortable.  Breakfast included was first class.  After the hike, we sat by the fire with a delicious Guinness and a fantastic atmosphere created by Bryan and Sheila.  Already looking for excuses to come back!

Sheila and Bryan Couldn’t Do Enough For Us

Five chaps from Wigan went for a fishing holiday. Bryan and Sheila looked after us like family and couldn’t do enough for us.  Bryan showed us the best places to fish  He even lent us his tractor to take our gear over the fields!   You couldn’t fault the rooms and the food.  Thank you for a very enjoyable stay we will be back!
