My wife and I spent the night here and couldn't fault it. The owners were friendly and couldn't do enough to make our stay more comfortable and enjoyable. They seemed to have an endless mental library of things to do, see, and places to eat nearby. The recommendations lived up to their descriptions too! The accommodation was full of character... More

I agree with the previous two reviews. The traffic noise is terrible and goes on till early hours and then every 15 mins or so until 5am when it all starts again. Do not stay there, the owner was not at all helpfull when I asked to switch rooms.

As you say, following booking in you asked if rooms were available at the rear. I apologised and pointed out that the guest house has no rear facing doubles, adding that we... More

We had booked a month before arriving for a 3 night stay, so were only offered a double rooom to the front of this lovely character building. It is on the busy A35 but the double glazing kept out most of the noise which builds up by about 7 a.m. Michael and Jane are wonderful hosts who have many years... More

We stayed for two nights at the Church View B&B. It has a great location and there is a lovely pub with great food just down the road, as well as the Nine Stones Monument - tiny and a little hard to find but worth a visit (past the Little Chef nearby). The landlady was so welcoming on arrival. She... More

Read what the other people have said, and it is all very true, we booked very late, just for one night, from the initial telephone call to our arrival to our leaving, Jane and Michael (the owners) were extremely helpful, Jane is fantastic at giving precise directions, and Michael is very chatty, and full of all kinds of information, these...

Lovely guest house, warm welcome, we had a lovely twin/en-suite room to a high standard. Great Breakfast with lots of options. Some very handy hints/tips for visiting the area. Off road park a bonus and good local Pub for evening food.

Lovely guest house. We had a cosy, clean room and the owners made us feel at home. One thing that could do with improvement is to have bigger beds otherwise everything else was fantastic. It's on a main road but we weren't greatly affected by it. Great pub just down the road. Breakfast was lovely with hot and cold options... More
