We have come to stay again in this wonderful village, returning to the Old House, however this time we are in the Housekeepers self catering cottage. Receiving a warm welcome we have enjoyed having space to come and go as we please, taking time to thoroughly relax, and in our case enjoy the delicious cream tea that was awaiting us... More

We stayed at The Old House for a nearby wedding with two other families. It was perfect for our situation and we really enjoyed our stay. The garden is beautiful and huge! A lovely and comfortable stay for our family.

This was our second stay her and once again we had a warm welcome when we arrived, a fantastic, huge room - the Coleridge Room - with a very comfortable bed and a sofa and chair to relax and watch TV. The toilet and shower room was literally just across the corridor and was not an inconvenience at all. The... More

Our second stay in the Housekeepers Quarters at The Old House, and just as pleasurable as the first - possibly more so, thanks to the lovely weather!

We stayed in the Garden Wing - a delightful, spacious 4 room ground floor 'cottage' with its own small garden patio which catches the morning sun so making it an ideal spot for breakfast.The accommodation is clean and tastefully furnished with...

This title refers to the opener for breakfast which was of elite restaurant standard. We stayed in the Coleridge room which was beautiful and more than that a good memory to take away. We walked around the grounds and enjoyed the stroll despite the time of year and the weather. Highly recommendable. Our thanks to our hosts.
