We had a lovely two night stay in a wonderful setting. The room, with its four post bed, was very comfortable and clean with en suite and a gorgeous view of the garden. Breakfast was delicious with local produce and home made bread. We will return again soon

We first came upon Wayside cottage and Janet and John 11years ago. We have been coming every year since then! We have stayed in all the rooms although we have our favourite they are all of an excellent standard. There is a good choice for breakfast and plenty of it. In the summer weather permitting breakfast is served on the... More

We enjoyed two nights at this lovely B & B. down a lane where ponies roam. Lovely breakfasts. Friendly dogs and owners. Peaceful location. Plenty of seating in patio garden and a lovely front garden. Sufficient parking.

We were staying at Wayside Cottage with a few of our walking group. On first impressions it is very good. On arrival we were offered tea and homemade fruit bread which was very good! The room was very clean but I think the four poster bed is a little unnecessary and it made the room feel smaller than it is... More

I mention the dogs because they are very friendly soppy things but if you are allergic or would simply not like dogs around then best to know up front. I was tempted to ask the owners if we could take one for a walk ! Anyway, as to practicalities, this is a great "traditional" B&B, rooms with quirky range of... More

We have just returned from a perfect stay at Wayside Cottage. A beautiful house and garden; we had a lovely room overlooking the garden. A friendly welcome from the owners and their dogs. Outstanding breakfasts with a huge choice. Nice village to explore. Pauline and Geoff

We had a lovely Easter weekend at Wayside cottage. The owners are very friendly and welcomed us with a tea and a slice of home made cake which, after a long journey, was especially enjoyed. The room we stayed in was beautiful and very comfortable which was reflected throughout the cottage. The breakfast was generous and very tasty, made with... More

I stayed here in April with my elderly Mum for 2 nights as we were attending a wedding in the village. We had a very friendly greeting from both owners and dogs and on our arrival, were invited in to the guest lounge where we were given fresh tea, coffee and cake. Our room was lovely with a window overlooking... More

Just returned from a lovely stay at Wayside Cottage over the Easter weekend and already missing it!

When we arrived we were offered tea and cake in the courtyard garden which was really welcoming. I was really impressed... More

There are six rooms to let on a Bed and Breakfast basis, all rooms are ensuite with either a showerroom or bathroom. There are pretty gardens to sit in and a guest lounge for evenings or bad weather.
