I chose the Chalk and Cheese for accommodations for my first visit to England as it was in walking distance from the friends I had gone to visit and highly recommended. Bridget and Andrew are wonderful, welcoming, fun hosts, and I had a great time. You could spend hours looking at all of Bridget's interesting antiques and mementos. I fell... More

We stayed in this quirky hotel over Christmas. The building is a converted Victorian school and is beautiful and full of character. The lounge and bar area is cosy with an eclectic mix of all sorts of furniture and nic nacs! Our bedroom was clean and homely . The proprietors Andrew and Bridgette are very welcoming without being too in... More

My partner and I stayed on Friday 12 December, we found this little hideaway to be quirky fun and relaxing. Nothing was too much trouble. Our room was very clean and the bathroom was lovely. We enjoyed a drinks by the log fire in the afternoon, and friends joined us for dinner in the evening. Andrew and Bridget were great... More

Very friendly bed and breakfast, Andrew and Bridget made me feel very welcome. Also ate lunch and dinner, good ploughmans and a couple of local pints for lunch and a very tasty pizza for supper. The English breakfast was very good too. I note a comment below about the temperature; this is an old characterful building, you can't have that... More

Went for meal to celebrate friends birthday. Bar and restaurant freezing gold. Out of four starters one was not available . Water served without ice. Unable to supply de-caffeinated coffee. Other coffees lukewarm. Finale was a small puppy entering the bar, uncontrolled, leaping up onto one of the guests, and laddering another guests tights. This seemed of no concern to... More

This place is amazing! Wonderful stay in their separate cottage, very quiet location (no phone signal at all) but is much needed if you need a break away from it all. Rooms are very cosy, and clean very uniquely decorated with Gorgeous bathroom!! The owners are lovely and the breakfast was very good. Only bad comment no hair dryer in... More

We have just returned from a two night stay at chalk and cheese. We had a lovely time and the accommodation was very nice. We had a four poster bed which was very big and comfortable. The surroundings were tranquil and the staff couldn't do enough for you. Two slight negatives in that there was no lock on our door... More

Stayed here for just the one night and it was fantastic! If you are looking for a quiet, tranquil location where you are unable to receive any phone signal then this is the place. I stayed in the separate cottage which was amazing access to a small kitchen, living room and a very grand bedroom and bathroom! Very quirky and... More

My husband and I stayed for only one night sadly but what a wonderful find this B and B turned out to be. You are made to feel totally at home in this converted village school by the owner. Comfy chairs and sofas to laze on and the most superb collection of "bits and pieces of treasured nonsense" for you... More
