A most enjoyable stay at this lovely B and B. Annie was welcoming and helpful; the bedroom had everything we could need - including very comfortable bed; all topped off by an excellent breakfast in an elegant dining room. Highly recommended.

I have walked past the house many times, but never appreciated what a little treasure trove lurked behind the door ! There are only three bedrooms, but residents have... More

The house is owned by Annie who makes you most welcome in her home which is a stunning mix of opulence and comfort. Breakfast is freshly prepared and served in the magnificent dining room and there is also a beautiful lounge... More

Managers of supposed five star hotels should come and stay at this remarkable B&B just to learn how it should be done. I cannot recommend this delightful home enough. I insist you stay here if you are visiting Hertford! Best breakfast ever...
