We had a wonderful recent holiday staying at The Charterhouse andMarion and Les couldn't have been more welcoming. We have 2 young children and all provisions were made for them from the ideal garden room, which meant we could come without disturbing other guests, to the lovely touches of plastic cups left for them on the hospitality tray in the...

My wife and I stayed at The Charterhouse mid June 2015 for 4 nights. Marion and Les are first class hosts and make everyone so welcome.The Charterhouse is ideally placed for all amenities and yet very secluded.Breakfasts are superb and great choice including Les`s homemade bread, jams and marmalades chutney etc.We will definitely stay again.

I had the pleasure of staying at The Charterhouse for three nights from the 22nd June 2015. Marion and Les couldn't have been more welcoming. Before arriving, I had had to change the booking slightly and communication with Marion was extremely friendly and helpful. On arriving at The Charterhouse, Les came down to the car park and carried my little... More

We have just spent a fantastic 4 day break at the Charterhouse hotel. Marion and Les are the best hosts you could ask for. Nothing is too much trouble. The breakfasts are superb. l have never stayed at a hotel with so much choice. I especially loved the homemade jams and marmalade made by Les and his freshly baked bread... More

My wife and daughter had stayed with les and Marion before, but this was my 1st time. I can only say that everything I was told by the missus before I went was absolutely true! We arrived late at night and were greeted warmly by both and shown to our lovely clean room. The next morning I was very impressed... More

Stayed here for 3 nights for a family wedding. We were greeted with a friendly warm welcome and tea and biscuits which we thought was a nice touch. The room had a lovely view, spacious and spotless! Even a bar of cadburys under each towel. Breakfast were superb, I've never found a B&B/hotel that does nice scrambled eggs or poached... More

Excellent B&B in a gorgeous location with fabulous hosts. Lovely comfortable rooms (we got to try two as we added an extra night to our stay), plus everything you could want for breakfast - even yummy homemade bread each morning. Don't know how Marion and Les manage to work so hard day in day out.
