This is a great B&B in a charming village. Whilst the building is traditional, the rooms are modern, clean and well thought out. Clearly Caroline has gone to a lot of trouble to make this a great B&B. Breakfast is excellent with locally sourced ingredients. Can't go wrong with Lower Farm.

Absolutely fantastic breakfast. But total value for money poor. The room was overpriced for the comfort and space on offer. "Bed and Breakfast" does imply both are considered. The shower was impressively spacious though, but then one spends less than 0.5 % of ones time in the shower. Also- "picturesque" might be thought to be on offer in a small... More

Had a lovely stay at Lower Farm.the rooms were great, clean and spacious. The breakfast was superb. Caroline who runs Lower farm was great, we were there for a family wedding and she helped with sorting taxis for us. Nothing was to much trouble. The location was beautiful and peaceful. I would recommend Lower farm to anyone and me and... More

Stayed for one night and could not fault it. Everything is of a very high quality. The rooms are perfect, clean functional and extremely well designed. The breakfast is one of the best I have ever experienced. Great selection and everything locally sourced To top it all Caroline is the perfect host, so so helpful. Will definitely stay here again.

Stayed here as part of a canoe 2 package, when the intenary said the accommodation was at a farm we didn't expect much. One of the owners Caroline picked us up from at an arranged point on the riverbank. The word wow was used quite a lot when we arrived. The rooms are new built motel style away from the... More

My friend and I had a very enjoyable stay here. Caroline is a warm, friendly and accommodating host. We booked a double room but I had come down with a bad cold so asked Caroline if she could move us to two single rooms, she did so happily and we weren't charged any surplus. The rooms were of top quality,... More

I recently stayed at Lower Farm when attending a friends wedding and had a lovely time. The B&B is in a very pretty village and the rooms are modern, spotless and have everything you need for a night away. Breakfast was delicious too. Caroline the owner was very kind and helpful and couldn't do enough to help during our stay.... More

Was recommended this B & B as my usual one was full and was slightly apprehensive as I was also booking it for a pal but was nearby so thought we'd give it a go. Found it peacefully tucked away at the end of a very pretty village but only 1/2 mile from the main routes so location was excellent.... More

Booked a room for two nights for work, was phoned at 21.30 the night before I was due to leave to be told they were cancelling the booking! Not at all helpful! Wont be visiting ever again. I spent the whole evening trying to find a place to stay for work!

Once again I can only apologise for this genuine mistake which was due to human error I did telephone you as soon as I realised a mistake had been made. I am sorry that your evening was wasted but I did offer to find alternative accommodation on your behalf. Caroline Marriott More
