We were given a very warm welcome from Diana, and shown to a lovely room overlooking the gardens. There was nothing that we could have asked for - every whim was catered for - and the beds were very comfortable. If you are in this area, I would stay here - you won't find a better place!

We want to live there! We only stayed for one night and had such a good stay we want to find an excuse to go back for longer. Our hosts were delightful and the food delicious all the ingredients locally produced. We were invited to watch the Six Nations rugby with them in the evening and found the host very... More

We arrived mid afternoon and received a warm welcome from our host. Our tandem was locked away in a shed, we were shown our room, which was large and spacious, with an ensuite bathroom with a bath - a real bonus, and then were invited down to share a cup of tea and cake in the lounge where a fire...

We were really well looked after by gracious hosts in a well appointed country house. Both the host and hostess went out of their way to make our stay truly memorable. Having a bakery, and a brewery,let alone an ice cream factory, nearby amonst the meadows was something special. We were taken to the sheep dog trails at a nearby... More

We returned to Greystones for the second time in three years mainly to visit family and friends in the area but also to again experience the first rate hospitality we enjoyed at this lovely B&B. The house itself is like a gracious old lady, a little faded in places but still full of dignity and charm. Our hosts Diana and... More

My two sisters, my husband and I all stayed at Greystones for a family wedding nearby. This was the second time we had been, and on both occasions we could not have asked for more. Mrs Hoare welcomed us with cups of tea AND cake, which was just what we wanted having driven from Norfolk! Our room was delightful, double... More

We arrived at Greystones un- announced having tried for accommodation in the area for the previous 3 hours. There was some doubt as to wether there was a room available as the lady already had it booked for the following day with an early check at 10 am! However she said if we did not mind vacating early, before 9am,... More

This is one of my most memorable stays while travelling, ever (and I've travelled a lot)! The house and the room we stayed in were beautiful and provided the ultimate English country side setting. There was a lot of care and really nice finishing touches, for example, when we arrived home after a wedding, the curtains had been drawn closed... More

A beautiful house, and lovely (huge!) room - elegant, comfortable and well-equipped. Delicious breakfast in a proper Georgian dining room - a very superior full English, plus cereal, yogurt, home-made jams etc. If you're looking for somewhere to stay in this area, I would definitely recommend Greystones. I've previously stayed at Pilgrims in the same village, which is perfectly nice... More
