We arrived at Timbers late afternoon on Friday 18 July following a difficult journey on the hottest day of the year. Angela and Alan immediately made us welcome with drinks and cake in their lovely garden. We had booked two rooms, both of which were excellent and very well appointed. In advance of our stay, they had arranged a table... More

You would be hard pushed to find a better appointed B&B than this. The facilities were on a par which you would find in a good hotel, but unlike many hotels, this has a very personal touch from the hosts, Angela and Alan. The breakfast menu was more than you would find in many hotels and we would dearly love... More

I spent a couple of nights on my own in the double Oak Room. I tend to sleep poorly in new places but I was able to stretch out in the double bed and had two of the most restful nights ever in a B&B. The room and en-suite bathroom were not large, but very well-appointed, even if not furnished... More

We were visiting the area as a bit of a mini break. Alan & Angela are very welcoming hosts.They make you feel very comfortable. The room was very well decorated and the bed was very comfortable. The en-suite is well laid out and very clean.We would heartily recommend Timbers as a place to stay if you are in this area.

The website calls it a luxury B&B with a first class breakfast and I was certainly not disappointed. Very warm welcome with home made cake and a fresh pot of tea from the hosts. Pleasant, clean, comfortable room with all the facilities. I slept very well. Breakfast, excellent, I had eggs parmasan, as it was a new one for me.... More

I stayed here with my husband for a short holiday. The room, facilities and hosts were wonderful. It was comfortable, clean and welcoming. The accommodation is in a quiet cul-de-sac close to the city centre with parking in front of the building. The room was kitted out with a TV, coffee and tea, biscuits, apples and even sherry! The shower-room... More

Lovely greeting for Alan and Angela , offer to carry bag, very well appointed room, very comfortable bed, supremely clean, nice teas and coffee in the room, pot of tea on arrival and a nifty little decanter of sherry! Lovely. Almost certainly better than any hotel... More
