As annual visitors to the area, my husband and I checked in for a long awaited weekend without the kids. The location never disappoints. We stayed in one of the loft rooms at the guest house. Yes, you bash your head if not careful and the saniflow is a little noisy. However, the charm of such a beautiful house and... More

An excellent stay. There is plenty of parking and there are four places in the village in which to have an evening meal. The en-suite room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was served at one long table and we found this this made for excellent conversation first thing in the morning. On arrival we were... More

I highly recommend Malt House. Lovely large home with 2.3 acres of grounds for strolling that include a garden, stream and pool. Clean and comfortable room (with power shower) and exceptional breakfast (make their own honey, apple juice and fresh eggs). Host was very welcoming and the location was good for accessing the local walks and canals. Would definitely return.
