I could not fault anything about my stay here.The house has real character and the decor and furnishings amazing. Hospitality was on offer as soon as the door was opened and Archie must be the most adorable guard dog ever.There was even a visitors lounge with books and DVDs and an open fire.My ensuite room was very comfortable and there...

It's always a real pleasure to go back to Kathy's Bed & Breakfast when visiting our parents in the village. The house is beautifully decorated, warm and cozy, the rooms are spacious and well-equipped, the welcome is friendly and attentive and the breakfasts are feasts! We couldn't think of a better place to stay over Christmas as it genuinely feels... More

It seems all are agreed on the welcome - it's like arriving to stay with friends - the fire is set, the room is fresh and yet those going for the first time, as we were, still had the joy of the breakfast to come! Kathy is the perfect hostess, and Archie simply adorable. We had three of the best... More

When I arrived I was greeted by Kathy and Archie and was immediately made to feel at home. It was a pleasure to stay in a charming room with modern facilities and some nice extra touches. Breakfast was one of the best I've had and I have absolutely no criticisms of this lovely B&B.

The towels, the sheets, the decor and the food have been chosen with such care and taste by the proprietor, a lovely person and a real professional, who puts guests needs first. Bravo for this wonderful B&B - where we have had the priviledge of staying twice - and for the delicious English breakfast.

We stayed here for one night as a stopover during a long trip. Although we arrived later than planned, Kathy was very welcoming, quickly recognising we were very tired and in need of a rest. The Square House is a beautiful home, spotlessly clean and feels "just right", the decor and furnishings complement the house wonderfully. Our room was nice... More

We have just had a perfect stay at the Square House. We were recommended by a lady at the nearby National Trust Barrington Court - a must see, by the way. From the moment we arrived at the door we were made to feel welcome. Kathy, the proprietor was so helpful and charming. The rooms are spotlessly clean with all... More

Perfect B&B in a pretty village - so much nicer than staying in a hotel. Kathy, the proprietress, is very pleasant and well organised. Also in residence is an excellent dog by the name of Archie who combines an agreeable nature with just the right amount of disobedience - he immediately identified me as a soft touch. The breakfast was... More
