When I arrived Debbie provided tea served in the garden which was greatly appreciated after a long day's travelling. The room was part of an annex to the main cottage and provided with all the amenities necessary for a stay of one night... More

This lovely B&B looks lovely on line and is even more beautiful in reality. Debbie and David are the perfect hosts, they are so helpful and friendly.

Apart from the room, your rewards will be meeting a Debbie and David and lovely breakfast served in the 350 year-old... More

This little cottage offers comfort and class for a small "off the beaten path" beautifully located accommodation, the staff are very polite and informative to the local area. The tea and homemade cake on arrival was most welcome but the breakfast was unbelievable and would thoroughly recommend this cottage to any couple.

We had booked a Vineyard Tour at nearby Chilford Hall and asked if we could leave our car at the cottage early in the morning which the lovely owners, Debbie and... More

We have just got back from staying at this wonderful cottage. Our first impression of the cottage and gardens was impressive, the owner greeted us with a very warm welcome and showed us up to the accommodation strait away.
