I really enjoyed staying at this lovely B&B. The house was amazing with really great surroundings and stunning views from our room. The room was spotless and beautifully appointed. The owners were also really welcoming and so helpful and accommodating. Breakfast was excellent too. I would thoroughly recommend staying here.

This is a splendid property gleaming with the huge amounts of love and care lavished on it but we’ll start with the few minor criticisms because finishing with those gives a “down” feel to otherwise good reviews: - it’s down a narrow farm lane so better (both more and MUCH LARGER) signposting is essential to mark the turnoff on Saunders...

This was our 2nd night in the UK, booked the day before, terrific room, great and helpful hosts. The breakfast was very nice. The room was good value for the middle of the holiday season, compared to a lot of others I looked at. We were very happy with our choice, thanks Stu and Jennifer.

This was a most acceptable B&B but overpriced. Our room was spacious and comfortable and breakfast was fine,but it was the most expensive accommodation we have had during a 3 month stay in the UK. We have stayed in places that provided many more extras and breakfasts that went the extra mile,and at 20-30 pounds cheaper per night. I have... More

My wife and I stayed for one night, it's the first time we had stayed in a b&b. what a truly lovely place run by equally lovely hosts. Furnishings and beds are to a very high quality of comfort. Excellent location with pleasant country walks places of interest in easily reachable distances. Over all 5star accommodation

Jennifer and Stuart are lovely, and very obliging, the area is very peaceful, the public areas are bright and spacious. The breakfast was excellent, but with maybe not as much choice as there might have been. I found our room (Dandelion) rather small for the price charged, with not much storage space (hanging space excepted) - and two bulbs were... More

Stayed here for 2 nights while visiting the roses at Mottisfont and Sir Harold Hillier Arboretum (both highly recommended). Owners Stuart and Jennifer have created a delightful, quiet country retreat overlooking farmland where nothing is too much trouble. We stayed in the Rose Room which was beautifully equipped and everything worked properly (which is not always the case). Jennifer cooked... More

My husband and I were on a 3 week holiday touring England and Scotland without any set schedule. We managed to stumble upon some of the best hotels and B&Bs imaginable.
