My friend and I have just spent two days at this B&B. Hosts were very accommodating and helpful in suggesting best places to visit. Breakfasts were great, setting was absolutely beautiful. Room with sitting room was lovely. Nothing negative to say about our stay. We loved it.

Travelled here as a couple in the first week of June 2014 for 2 nights. We stayed in the Rose Cottage, which was incredible. The decor was lovely, the room was clean, and it was enormous. Ian, the host, thought of everything. There was a space heater in the washroom, amenities, a tv with numerous channels, dvds in the drawers... More

A lovely B&B; we were fortunate to have a lovely meal prepared there on the first night- Highly recommended after a long day of traveling! Penny is a delightful evening host; Ian is the perfect morning man with lots of suggestions on where to visit.

I spent a few nights at the English Country Garden B&B and had a truly incredible experience. Ian and Penny were gracious hosts and made sure to make our stay extra special. We stayed in the Russian Room and needless to say it was beautiful. The food was also top notch, especially if your stay includes dinner! Highly recommended.

The suite is actually three rooms --- a bedroom, bath, and small sitting room with a lake view, good reading lamp and comfy chairs, where I read for several hours.
