Have just return from a weekend stay at The Charter House Guesthouse and would definitely recommend a stay here. We have 2 young children and this was a perfect place to stay- we had a garden room which has its own entrance and is clean, tidy with nice decor and access to an outdoor pool which the children loved.

The accommodation was very clean and comfortable and it was lovely to see a large supply of tea, coffee and biscuits topped up daily in our room. Breakfast was plentiful... More

We found The Charterhouse back in 2011 and we have been back every year since and will be going back in 2015. Having stayed in many B&B's in many cities in the UK and Europe it is definitely one of the best. The welcome by Marion and Les is unbelievable with tea and biscuits waiting for you. We have stayed... More

I stayed at the Charterhouse with family for the weekend. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I suffer from Celiac and the kitchen were excellent and providing plenty of food for my condition. The rooms were very tidy and very clean. A lovely bed and breakfast that I would recommend to anyone.

As soon as we arrived Marion and Les made us feel at home straight away. Our room was the best that we have stayed in. Breakfast will never be the same again!! We can't wait to go back again. PAUL and Jane English

A fantastic week at the Charterhouse. Marion and Les are very friendly and welcoming and are always about to help if needed. They were brilliant with my little girl and always had time for a chat. The rooms were fantastic and extremely comfortable and clean. The breakfast is also fantastic with lots of variety especially Les's home made bread.

This was very very good. First off, we got in not in the best of places as we had just walked back from our car which had gotten a flat tire, but Les was very welcoming as he helped us out and gave us a ride back to the car. They were both very welcoming and nice hosts which gave... More
