Booked very late on the day for a room at the Magnolia Guest House, prompted by our need for a dog friendly place to stay. We just managed to scrape in for the Bank Holiday and we were warned that it was the smallest room in the house. It was small, it was cosy and came with all the things... More

Absolutely fantastic guest house. Ian and sarah are so thoughtful and kind. Ask for room 2 its truly wonderful. Breakfasts was so Mmmm and tasty. Everything was so spotlessly clean. Couldn't of wished for a better place to stay enjoyed every minute. You will not be dissapointed that's a promise. Definately going back next year (room 2).

Booked at fairly short notice for a 2-day escape; we wanted to save on Kennel fees so took the dog, and chose Magnolia based entirely on the reviews here. We were not disappointed. The quality of the welcome is the most important aspect of any service, be it hotel, B&B, pub, restaurant, café, whatever. We were all made very welcome;... More

Ian and Sarah welcomed us... More

I made a last minute booking for two nights at Magnolia Bed and Breakfast. Very welcoming and friendly, both on the phone and upon arrival. Rooms basic but very comfortable, clean and good value. They don't just accept dogs to stay, they positively welcome them (even sneaking my pooch a breakfast sausage!!). Lovely breakfast with a good choice. Will definitely... More
