Ian and Sarah are the most welcoming of hosts, the house is clean and tidy (and will only get better with the planned refurbishment) and the breakfasts generous - I haven't had such a fresh egg for years!

A gentleman sitting in the garden with his sweet little dog said the people who ran it were nice and the place was good, his little dog looked like yes he speaks the truth. So we we went in and...

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
