Perfect hosts, what an enjoyable place to stay. Nothing too much trouble for Alan and Angela. They booked our evening meal at The Treble Tile, super food. The accomodation will not disappoint you. The breakfast was superb. We visited Hyde Hall and Beth Chatto Gardens during our stay. Timbers was for us the perfect location

We stayed at Timbers for just one night, the hosts were very friendly and answered any questions we had on the surrounding area and gave us tips on where to go for dinner and to visit. They were very helpful and the breakfast was excellent! The rooms are spacious, clean, and homely, everything you would expect from a quality B&B.... More

My hushand and I stayed at Timbers for eight nights- and enjoyed every minute. Angela and Alan are fantastic: extremely welcoming, very friendly, very helpful and very likeable. The rooms are spacious, clean and very well equipped. And the breakfast comes close to paradise: whatever you like is on the menu!!! The view into the garden while having breakfast adds... More

Described as Luxury B & B , certainly lives up to that description. Welcoming hosts , well appointed rooms and a breakfast to die for. Located in a quiet cul - de - sac with parking , and , within easy reach of local pubs and restaurants. Would not even search for other B & B's when I return to... More

Set in a modern, large house. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Alan and Angela are excellent hosts. Friendly and helpful with plenty of suggestions of where to eat and visit. They have tried to think of everything you might need to make your stay the best they can. From good quality WiFi, to a carafe of sherry. Would stay... More

This B & B had the wow factor as soon as you walked through the door, Angela & Alan are excellent hosts. Room & en-suite were spacious with lovely decor, and spotlessly clean. Lots of little extras that just makes the difference. Would stay here again without a doubt.

I've been lucky enough to stop at some quality B+Bs and Timbers is another one I am happy to recommend. Clean, all the trimmings and everything I expect from 4* accommodation. As for the unique selling point, at Timbers, it is the hosts, Alan and Angela that provide the X factor! Both go out of their way to meet you... More

We stayed here in October...what a fabulous b&b you feel you are somewhere very special and Angela & Alan could not have been more hospitable. The breakfast was outstanding, most comfortable beds and lots lovely little extras-shortbread & sherry in our room. Will definitely return and would highly recommend!
