Our stay with Mike and Sue was perfect. My friend and I stayed for 2 nights to go to a wedding at Norwood Park. We travelled down on the Friday evening and didn't arrive until nearly 10pm. Mike came out and welcomed us into The Old Chaff Barn and helped carry our bags (I do not travel light!) to our... More

I would recommend visiting this beautiful part of the UK just to stay with Mick and Sue. Their lovely B&B really is a home from home and they couldn't have been more kind and generous. Although they have room to sleep about 4 people, they only ever take one group at a time, so there is no need to share... More

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

Sue and Mick are a delightful couple who make their guests feel very at home. They are very generous with their time and their home. The breakfasts are delicious and can be as relaxed as you like. The bedroom is very comfortable and beautifully decorated. The Victorian rolled topped bath provides a luxurious soak. Mick and Sue have some wonderful... More

We arrived last Sunday after walking 12.5 miles feeling very tired,but the welcome we received was so warm and inviting,it felt like we had... 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...
