We stayed here for four nights and it was excellent. We were greeted by Sam who was charming and welcoming and we were grateful for his knowledge of the surrounding area. It is a lovely place to stay, quiet and in nice surroundings. The breakfasts were first class and we wouldn't hesitate to come back again or recommend it to... More

The place is quite charming, set against the backdrop of a working farm. We didn't even mind the overwhelming scent of, uh, chicken-based fertilizer that filled the air. After all, the eggs the next morning were fresh and delicious, as was the rest of the morning meal. The problem was with the shower in our room. My other half could... More

The place to stay, is really the place to stay. Unfortuneatly we was only staying for one night because of other planned things ahead. Sam the manager gave us a lovely welcome and showed us around on this nice property. Bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was over the top lovely. We will definitely come back for another stay.

And I was not disappointed. We were able to immediately relax here. Nothing was too much trouble and for the price, the service and breakfast was exceptional. We both opted for the additional massage service and were able to make the most of our time here. We also stayed an extra night, I'd like to have stayed longer, but ...schedules!... More

We needed a place to stay for the night after travelling to a wedding. Very beautiful, peaceful house. Our room was spotless with lots of extra touches and a fabulous view. Sam was the epitome of helpful and polite host. We had a wonderful and comfortable nights sleep and in the morning, we had a quality, beautifully cooked breakfast. I... More

A warm and very friendly reception. A beautiful house in an idyllic setting. Topped off with the best breakfast we've had in a long while. Set in a quintessential English village, "The Place to Stay" is indeed aptly named - we'll be back to stay again. HIGHLY RECOMMEND you do the same.

The place to stay is a fabulous place to escape from reality, I stayed here with my partner for a few days to relax. In the first instance I would like to say thank you to Sam our host during our stay. Sam ensured that our stay was relaxing, stress free and comfortable. The room was impeccably clean and well...
