This gorgeous little B&B gets a 5* rather than a 4* review from us primarily due to it's incredible staff David and John! We booked at extremely late notice due to needing a place to stay after a family tragedy before Christmas; and location for us to be with other family members was key. Perhaps slightly on the pricey side... More

My partner and I decided last minute to go for a couple of nights in the countryside to have a break from the city. We also wanted a gay friendly B&B and we were lucky to find this one. The owners were extremely friendly and waited for us as we arrived later than expected (because of the traffic). We got... More

On a walking holiday comfortable beds are vital. You will not be disappointed here. The whole place is spotless and the owners David and John are excellent hosts and John is an excellent chef. They have run the hotel for the past 10 years and have extensive local knowledge.

David and John are extremely friendly, helpful and unique characters. We felt welcomed as soon as we arrived, in fact even before then. Our room was lovely with all the amenities required. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice and local produce. They were attentive when required and cooked to order, which is always a benefit. I would recommend... More

Just returned from a 5 night stay and have no complaints whatsoever. The room (5) was clean and comfortable with a lovely view. Breakfast was first class and the owners polite, friendly and helpful. The garden is an ornithologists dream. Will definately stay again

David and John made me very welcome from the moment I arrived after a very long and tedious journey. My lovely room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. The bed was great with a really good mattress. The hospitality tray was well stocked with a selection of Fair Trade drinks, plus biscuits and even some toffees. Plenty of towels plus fine... More

Sadly only spent one night at this establishment! We were greeted by David when unpacking our car and from then onwards he couldn't do enough for us! I'm a poor sleeper at the best of times, however I had the best nights sleep I'd had in along time! Breakfast was amazing! Never tasted mushrooms as nice!
