We have just returned from a weekend at Laurel Cottage and can not recommend this place enough! The owners made us feel extremely welcome and everything had been thought of - a fridge to use, wine glasses in the room, a bottle opener, proper sized mugs and delicious biscuits. Breakfast was tasty, including homemade muesli and cake! There is also... More

You're guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome from owners, Alison and Wayne. Great breakfasts with a daily 'special' option, as a Full English can get a bit repetitive..
