My partner and I stayed here overnight to attend a wedding at Norwood Park and could not have wanted more from a B&B. Michael and Sue were so welcoming and provided for our every need. The B&B is set in beautiful surroundings with much wildlife and their dog Treacle was a delight! The room was perfect; very comfortable bed and... More

We booked the old chaff barn looking for a quiet rural stay whilst attending a friend's wedding reception. We couldn't have asked for more, our hosts Michael and Sue were so welcoming from the moment we arrived. We were greeted with a glass of wine...joined them in front of their log fire place and talked  about their amazing travels across Asia. ... More

The bedroom is very comfortable and beautifully decorated. The Victorian rolled topped bath provides a luxurious soak. Mick and Sue have some wonderful... More

Sue and Michael really do make their guests feel at home. If you are in the mood, they will offer you wine and you can ask about their fascinating travels, illustrated by Michael's stunning photographs. Loved the decor and attention to detail at this delightful place. They even lent me one of their books! I would definitely go out of... More

What a wonderful find! This isn't just a good B&B, Oh, no. You are welcomed into Mick and Sue's lovely home like old friends. Far from being banished to your room, you are invited to join them over a glass or two of very nice wine. The conversation flows and you are regaled with stories of their amazing travels. There...

From start to finish our whole experience could not been more perfect. The setting of the Old Chaff Barn is an idyllic retreat, and the quirky charm of the accommodation will not fail it impress. Our host was extremely welcoming and friendly. We were given a lift to a local wedding venue and even picked up in the early hours... More
