    “Runswick is a lovely house with excellent facilities.”

    Everything you could want is available. Comfy beds and a great shower. There was a lovely welcome hamper when we arrived and soon after the owner appeared with a home baked cake. There is so much to do in the area and we may well stay again in the summer.
