It really was such an enjoyable stay from the first moment we arrived. Derek and Monique are lovely couple, they could have not been more inviting and welcoming. The room was such a delight and the small touched and details around the house are fascinating. We had a massage by lovely Karen, went horse riding locally and visited local pubs.... More

Very friendly and welcoming owners, who are both helpful and experienced hosts. We will definitely return here. An extensive breakfast, cooked to your specific wishes. What a nice way to start the day. And a... More

As soon as we stepped through the door we were made to feel so welcome. The room was beautiful and so many lovely touches from a candle in the bedroom to a lovely selection of soap and bath salts in the bathroom. The breakfast was delicious and an amazing selection of cereal and fruit. The homemade mini muffins every morning... More

We stayed at Kester House for one night on a Saturday evening and we couldn't have asked for anything more! Such a beautiful house inside and out with lovely hosts. We were lucky enough to stay in the Armada room, which was amazing. The room had so much character starting with the tiny door to enter, and the decor inside... More

We booked our stay at Kester House after reading the many positive reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome by Derek who is an ideal host. We sat drinking freshly- made tea and eating delicious homemade cakes while Derek told us something of the fascinating history... More

We arrived at 4.30 to be greeted by Derek and Monique and given tea and cakes in the garden with 2 of their other guests. A very relaxed and enjoyable time. The house was full of character, the room and facilities excellent and the breakfast first class.
