Normally we stay in he larger "chain" type hotels but wanted smoothing more quaint and personal so chose this B&B. Initially was based on the location as it was near where we needed to be but also the reviews from other travellers. And we weren’t disappointed on both fronts! Simon was very helpful in directions to Sywell but their attention... More

The owners of the hotel were extremely friendly and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble. The room was clean and the four poster bed was extremely comfortable. The room itself was brilliant, all designed in the old fashioned way with some quirky ideas being used, for example, one of the lamp tables was in fact an old fashioned suitcase turned... More

Located near parking and easy to find. Checking in, or rather meeting the owners was fast, efficient with just the righ amount of local information. The room had a small door, so it did feel a little bit like Alice entering the room, but once in the room it was opulent. The bed was comfy, room is quiet and clean.... More

I've stayed at the old house before and found it first class for service, decor and food. In fact I couldn't fault anything when I last stayed there. I came back recently half prepared to be disappointed. In my experience consistency is often the thing that lets so many establishments down. Well I did go back, and not only had... More

We stayed for one night in Nov 14 as we were attending a funeral locally. William greeted us and showed us to our room. We returned after the funeral and William very kindly recommended and booked us a table in a local restaurant. Breakfast was truly excellent. Freshly cooked and plenty of it. The building is very old so has... More

What a great and wonderful surprise from entry to exit.Simon made me very welcome on arrival Sunday and his care/ attention without in any way being intrusive or over the tap made for a great oasis of peace during a high pressurised business contract over three successful days.This is a hidden gem.The rooms are amazing and the whole place redolent...

We chose this B&B based on the reviews from other travellers and we weren’t disappointed!

We stayed at this lovely old house in August 2014. Refurbished to a high standard, it still retains the cosiness and historic feel of the original house. Everything was of excellent quality including the beds and the beautiful shower room. It was made complete by William and Simon who were the perfect hosts and provided a great breakfast. The price...
