We have just stayed here for a weekend break and thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it anybody. A warm friendly welcome from Mike and Patsy greeted us on arrival and we felt home from home strait away. Credit must be given for the high standards and all the extra little touches provided .A word of warning though the... More

Although well travelled we rarely post reviews as time does not always permit. Mike & Patsy however thoroughly deserve a little time in return for the enormous amount of passion & commitment they put into looking after their guests at Summer Hill. From the moment we arrived (a warm welcome at the door by Mike followed by tea & delicious... More

We stayed here for a weekend in May 2015. We were warmly received with a cup of tea and home made cakes. Our room was spacious, clean and beautifully decorated, with a bowl of fresh fruit and a chocolate at our bedsides. Little finishing touches that add up! There was a bay window in our room with comfortable chairs and... More

Just returned from a 4 night stay here in their "accessible" twin room. Following a road accident I was struggling to get about and the "through floor" lift saved me from having to crawl up the stairs as I had been doing at home! The room had a walk in wet room too. Lovely relaxing lounge for the use of... More

Perfect Bed and Breakfast. We stayed here for a few days, but enjoyed each day. The room was perfectly decorated and very comfortable. We got a good advise to walk through the fields to have diner in the evening to the Queens Head. One stickey toffee pudding is enough for two and one of the best we tasted. If you... More
