A return visit after a four year gap, and the service and welcome remain the best we have ever experienced. Lynne and Pete are attentive and welcoming hosts, and as soon as we arrived they welcomed us warmly, joined us for a cup of tea and offered chocolate cake, and we were chatting like old friends within five minutes.

We were made to feel exceptionally welcome, for example as we were celebrating we were provided with champagne glasses.

Everything was spotlessly clean and the breakfast was fabulous. We... More

We were tired from a long walk on the SWCW, but the welcome soon revived us. Lovely hosts, house and garden. Exceptional breakfast quality and choice, after a good nights sleep in comfy well furnished bedrooms. This B&B was top class.
