This really is a gem of a B and B - not cheap but packed with charm and comfort. From the moment of our arrival to departure we were made to feel entirely at home. Furnishing and decor throughout are tasteful and of high quality. The walled garden is charming and offers a great space for sitting outside. Our bedroom... More

Stayed for the weekend for an amazing wedding. The venue was top draw. The staff in both the day and night were attentive and went above and beyond to make sure the day was perfect. The food and service was quality and I would definitely come back, even if its just for a visit.

Stayed for 2 nights in the Cobourg room overlooking the garden. Fabulous place to stay and lived up to the expectations of previous reviews and true to the website. Truly a boutique B+B experience. Loved the quirky interior design and decor. Nice finishing touches in the rooms, such as the lovely smelling toiletries in the bathroom and the ground coffee... More

I really cannot recommend this highly enough. The warmest welcome with an offer of refreshment within minutes of arriving was greatly appreciated after a long drive. As first impressions go an impressive house with the most beautiful garden. Lovely room with attention to detail & a very comfy bed (my one & only gripe no full length mirror & dim... More

I cannot speak highly enough. We used to come to the supper clubs here to see if we wanted to have our wedding there. They were great! It was £35 each and all the wine you could drink with amazing food to share. We came to three or four including the christmas one. They were so helpful and amazing with... More

This is one of the best B&B hotels I have stayed in anywhere! It’s a beautiful historic house, in which every detail of the restoration has been carefully thought through. The Crown Room lived up to its name! It’s a spacious, light, decadent and sumptuously luxurious room. Using the WC each time is equivalent to mini lecture in any given... More

Spent one night at the Old Rectory on a gorgeous summer's day and fell in love with the place. So where to start..... The place oozes with style and as you walk through the door, the pressures of the world miraculously just disappeared. Staff are delightful and they couldn't do enough to make sure we had everything, the breakfast was... More
