My husband and I stayed on Saturday 18th April and were very impressed! The owners couldnt be more accommodating. We needed a place to stay having been at a party and it was not a problem at all that we arrived at 1am in the morning! Lovely large room and comfy bed...just felt a shame we couldnt stay for longer... More

We booked a one night stay on a B & B basis at The Square and Compass and couldn't fail to be impressed. The property proudly displays its 4 star AA sign on entry to the generous sized car park which was tidy and well kept. We were made very welcome by the bar staff and owner and shown to... More

After reading a review on this website I felt appalled how some people can stoop so low. A comment which included photos left me gob smacked. Some people have no time and simply go out of their way to find problems. I stayed at The Square and Compass this month and found it outstanding. The staff were wonderful and made... More

Had a really lovely stay at this place when we stopped off on the way down to Devon. The rooms were spacious and clean with big beds! Food in the pub was great and breakfast was also very good. The staff were really attentive and happy to help. Look forward to visiting again soon!

I have just returned from a second stay at the Square and Compass Stables and would like to highly recommend the accommodation. Rooms are large, immaculately clean, as on my previous stay, and well equipped, I am at a loss as to how the reviewer below could have found such problems with the standards of the cleanliness, as on both...

Stayed in what appeared at first glance to be a clean and modern room with en-suite. Lovely newish stable block type accommodation in pub grounds. Fantastic bed & linen. The trouble started when my book stuck to the bedside table! Wiped it clean then started noticing "other stuff", yuk. Dog hairs in all the draws too. Lampshades absolutely coated in... More

Surprised that this guest went to so much trouble to pull out the extremely heavy almost unmoveable 6'6" bed in order to take these pictures. More

Stayed while on business in the area. Good welcome, very good accommodation, free internet, plentiful parking. Good restaurant / bar, and the food was of good quality, with more than enough choice. Also enjoyed a good freshly made breakfast. All in all, very good, well worth what I was charged. In this area, give it a go.

Lovely room. Slightly cold on entering but soon remedied by highering up radiator. Ideal surroundings. Breakfast well worth the price and food hot when served. Staff very friendly and not too imposing
