My husband and I have just returned from a 3 day break. We found this bed and breakfast perfect for location, comfort and price. The owners have clearly put a lot of care in decorating the rooms and providing lots of little bits of information to make the stay more pleasurable. The breakfast is great- with one special breakfast everyday!... More

A lovely Victorian house with 5 B&B Rooms, providing comfortable and well-appointed accommodation. Hosts Gareth and Sarah were helpful and sociable, and we were offered tea and cake on arrival. Breakfasts were exceptional and provided the ideal start to a day's walking.

We stayed here for 2 nights in June. What a lovely little find. Only 5 rooms which allows the hosts, Gareth and Sarah, to give you that special treatment. They were so friendly and helpful. The bedroom (the Tennyson room) was perfect. Beautifully decorated with lovely sash windows and lovely artwork. The bathroom was well equipped with toiletries. Nice little... More
