This was our 4th stay in the Minerva and, as before, had an excellent time with a very clean, well equipped bedroom and superb (and large) breakfasts. Dave & Rachel are excellent hosts and the advice they give re local amenities and restaurants can't be faulted. Looking forward to returning when they have their Steakhouse open.

I turned to Rachael and Dave for help... More

We stayed for four nights this week and were very impressed - spotlessly clean and well run - breakfast was perfect and we would definitely stay there again! Well done Rachel and Dave and we hope we see you in our part of the country soon :0)
