Without a doubt one of the nicest places we've stayed.....Beautifully decorated and well appointed with all mod cons but retaining the charm of the origional building. We were greeted with a smile, tea, coffee and milk and lovely fresh baked biscuits. The bed was big and comfortable and all the linen and towels were beautifully fresh. I can't fault it... More

Stayed here on a business trip and it was an absolute haven. Karen and John could not have been more welcoming or accommodating. Comfortable bed, and lots of lovely touches in the room. Delicious breakfast. Can't wait to come back for a proper holiday!

This property was the highlight of our three week tour of the UK and lived up to its description of luxury, boutique B and B. We stayed in the suite and were so content that we could easily have spent a week instead of two nights. We loved the romantic climb upstairs with the rope railing, the beautiful original artwork,...

I've lost count on how many times we've stayed here now! It really is our home from home. Karen, John & Monty are always welcoming and super lovely hosts! Karen's famous butter melt biscuits still fail to disappoint! Best breakfast I've had ever in a B&B, always hot and cooked perfectly, cereals, cooked breakfast, fruit salad, juices, hot drinks, everything... More

Came here for a surprise weekend away for my birthday last year and it was absolutely beautiful. We stayed in the self-catering side/the old bakery and it was just perfect, it felt like our own little home and is stunning! The decor was just amazing and designed extremely well. The hostess was lovely and very welcoming and would love to... More

Just spent three lovely days at this superb B&B and the welcome could not have been warmer, what a lovely lady Karen is. Stayed in the blue room in the attic space, a lovely cosy room with character and a big deep square bath. It had the usual kettle t-bags etc. Plus delicious home made biscuits and a small fridge...

What a great find. This b&b was perfect in every way. Warm, cosy, luxurious and Karen was a superb hostess, cook and tour guide. One day we had a delicious breakfast round the open fire, the next we were sittingin the delightful courtyard having breakfast in the sunshine feeling as if we were in the south of France. Karen has... More

This is when I love Tripadvisor! A place with ratings like these is guaranteed to be good and The Post House definitely didn't disappoint. Beautifully presented and the perfect place to spend our anniversary along with an evening meal at the michelin-starred Pony and Trap nearby. We stayed in the Suite which gave us a bathroom and little sitting room.... More

My partner and I stayed here for a weekend to celebrate our anniversary and it was absolutely perfect. We stayed in The Suite which just oozed charm and character everywhere you looked. The homemade biscuits in the bedroom were the best I've even eaten, the rooms were all warm, comfortable and relaxing and the freestanding bath was amazing. Breakfast was... More

We stayed at The Post House for just a few days...and it wasn't long enough. Karen has built a wonderfully calming home in French/Shabby Chic style with a warm welcome and perfect, unfussy breakfasts of excellent quality. Our 'suite' was one of three rooms: bedroom, lounge, glorious bathroom( with a bath big enough to swim in) and is one of... More
