We stayed at Harlequins for 6 nights while visiting family. The welcome by Gill was lovely, the house very nicely decorated and everything was spotless. The bedroom was comfortable and roomy with a very nice en-suite. Breakfast was outstanding with a great selection of cereals and lovely fresh fruit. Gill also catered for our gluten free needs. Very highly recommended.

We had a very comfortable and relaxing bedroom - and tea and home made cake on arrival was very welcome after a tiring drive. The next day we took the chain ferry... More

The breakfast was made to order and the pancakes I asked for were delicious; as well as offering tea/coffee, cereals etc. I... More

We had a lovely clean room with very good quality bedding, crystal glasses and bone china cups. The shower was very efficient and there was everything available to make our stay memorable. I was particularly impressed by the breakfast, the table ornaments were delightful. Being a vegetarian is sometimes awkward, but Gill even had vegetarian sausages to substitute meat products....
