We spent the weekend here when visiting local area (and married daughter). We got lost, but that was more down to the accuracy of google maps! I rang Carol and she gave very clear directions from where we were and we found it in no time after that. We were made to feel extremely welcome on arrival, and were treated... More

Within a very short time we felt like family rather than guests. Lovely home made cakes in our room and again in the restful Garden with a great cup of tea. Carol & Bob have overlooked nothing in their amazing b and b and the choice for breakfast well we did not know what to choose. So much well cooked... More

We picked this B&B based on good web reviews and I'm so glad we did. Everything was of a high standard, from the communication when booking , right up to the greeting and the welcome cuppa and beautiful slices of cake after a long car journey. The room overlooked the garden and was absolutely spotless. There were ample tea and... More

Amazing B&B! Lovely room, first rate breakfast, freshly cooked with excellent ingredients! Carol and Bob were friendly, helpful hosts. Nice touches- homemade cake both in the room and in the tranquil garden. Will definitely stay again! Shame it was only for 1 night, we would have liked to spend longer!
