The Library House is first class. From the warm welcome to the luxury room with the most comfortable bed I've slept in everything was faultless. Breakfast was superbe and Tim and Sarah the perfect hosts. I would highly recommend this B&B.

As one of four couples we took over The Library House. Sarah and Tim are fantastic hosts and we wanted for nothing. We had the Eliot room to the front of the property. Superbly well appointed, the bed was super comfy and the breakfasts were fabulous. Not sure when we will return but aim not to make it too far... More

My wife and I spent a long weekend at the Library House and found Tim and Sarah to be most welcoming, gracious and helpful hosts. The room was lovely and quality of the bed, linens and accessories was top notch. The attention to detail was brilliant, including the gourmet coffee, biscuits and water bottles on the tray in the room.... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay here. The afternoon tea was a wonderful welcome and our room was well appointed with a lovely big American bed. Location was perfect for exploring this museum rich area. Breakfast was served to order from a good range of choice and I loved my cafetière coffees! Millie made the stay - she is... More

On the good side, comfortable clean room, good location, nice hosts. On the bad side, limited breakfast, appalling coffee, and sharing the lounge with the hosts just not a good idea. Difficult to feel really relaxed in someone else's main living room. Millie the dog very nice though.

i am sorry and not just a little dismayed that Jim B found his overall experience to be "patchy". looking back over Tripadvisor comments, post-visit "thank you" emails and cards and indeed comments in our visitor's book, people seem to like the way we do things. i think his comments also highlight the gulf between the flexibility and facilities that...

The last time we visited the Library House my wife & I got engaged. We were blown away by how lovely Sarah & Tim were and how lovely the house is. They were equally warm and hospitable when we arrived this time, greeting us with tea & (really good) cake. The rooms are gorgeous - very comfortable and well decorated.... More

Elegant B&B in the town's former library with friendly, welcoming hosts. Perfectly prepared breakfasts and a pop-up dinner by a local chef added to our enjoyment of this first-class retreat in the heart of town. Several nearby museums tell the story of the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in this area. We stayed four days and didn't want to leave.

Really friendly hosts; comfortable room; gorgeous house; great breakfast; excellent hospitality; superb location; tea and delicious cake on arrival: lovely dog; beautiful garden; inexpensive wine. I think that covers it.
