We had a lovely weekend here. Mike the owner greeted us and was an excellent host. Our room (No.4) was clean, light and spacious with a very comfy bed. Breakfasts were excellent with a good choice, nicely served at a large table shared by all the guests which may not be to everyone's taste but we enjoyed it as we... More

What an amazing house, set in a fabulous location! We were very well looked after and our rooms quaintly appointed. I stayed in one of the roof rooms and it is a little cramped in the bathroom (actually that's an understatement, but it adds to the character!). I will stay here again!

We arrived and were greeted in a friendly and efficient manner by the owner's son-in-law, who was part of the holiday stand-in team. As he led us up towards the second floor we joked that the headroom was getting lower and lower. He then made the point that there was restricted height on the staircase and in the room. This...

This is a very well appointed B and B with a fabulous garden by the river and a superb pool. It also has a comfortable guest lounge with a TV and the owner is very pleasant and helpful. However there were several issues as follows. I have stayed in many, many b and b's but this was the first time... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here a couple of weeks ago for two nights and had a lovely time! The house itself is beautiful and we were warmly welcomed by Mike. I had read some reviews about the loft rooms being small because they're sloped but actually I like that style of room so I chose to book it -... More

My partner and myself stayed here last weekend and had a fantastic two nights! The owner had previously been extremely helpful over the phone when we phoned up with an enquiry and to but an extra nights stay, we only wish we had booked an even longer stay! The room we stayed in was lovely and breakfast the next morning... More

At first sight a very clean, smart, well maintained house with a lovely garden and swimming pool. It could have a slightly larger sign outside; we drove straight past it. Breakfast was fine though not exceptional and with a good range of choice. Having said that though, we were taken aback when a guest asked for an omelette and was... More

We spent 3 nights at the Malt House in a room with double bed and ensuite shower, sink & loo. Mike, the owner was a nice guy, happy to chat without being intrusive. The location is really good with the river running by, the White Hart pub and bunk house across the road, the Swan Inn (twice local CAMRA pub... More

Stayed here last week for our anniversary weekend and had a lovely time at this goldmine of a B&B. It's a great place to unwind and just relax. Our room was beautiful, very clean and home from home. The staff that we saw were very lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was amazing with a choice of all... More

If only we had had a room in the main House then I am sure it would have been very good but it must have been full as we had to stay in the holiday cottage which the bedroom was very, very small. No Tv only a shared one in the Lounge with the other bedroom. No Dressing Table in... More
