This is a fabulous home & stunning surroundings. When we arrived we were greeted by Vanessa & had refreshments in the lounge. We had the family room on ground floor. It was huge and the sofa beds were as comfortable as the large bed in the room. The shower was powerful & very well equipped bathroom . The whole house... More

When we arrived the lovely Vanessa greeted us with refreshments in the lounge before showing us to our fantastically huge room. When I booked, the family room was already taken so Vanessa very kindly offered me a bedroom with an extra sofabed so we were able to stay with our two children. The room was big and airy and very...

When we arrived we were greeted by Vanessa & Scout (her beautiful dog). We were taken to our room and all I could say was, "wow". The room was beautifully decorated with lovely furniture including an oak bed, chairs and a table and also a settee. The bathroom was beautifully fitted with luxurious soaps, shower gels and Egyptian cotton towels.... More

we booked a room on the internet but were not expected apparently an email had been sent but not received. This meant we waited until about 5pm for our room, which is really not acceptable after a long journey. The B and B is in a lovely isolated location with country road assess excellent hospitality and advice given about where... More

Hello Dr Spincer, thank you for taking time to post your review. Given I emailed you, and showed you the email after you booked a room only available to guests with mobility difficulties, asking you to advise which room you wanted it is a little unfair not to mention that you failed to get back to me. I showed you... More

We stayed here for two nights, the owner is very friendly. The breakfast was very good and the rooms were very pleasant and quiet. No complaints at all, the hostess was very knowledgable about the history of the building which was interesting.

We visited in April this year with friends and stayed for four nights. We thought it was wonderful, nothing seemed too much trouble for Vanessa. The rooms were splendid and comfortable. A peaceful place to stay. Looking forward to a return visit.

We stayed for 3 nights in a downstairs room suitable for most disabilities, it was large enough to get my walker in, the chairs both suitable and comfortable yet at the same time you did not feel like you were in a disabled room and you have lovely views of the garden. Breakfast each morning excellent and our one evening... More
