Frances, our host, greeted us on arrival and offered to make us tea. The Gables is a gem of a house, full of character, charm and lovely architectural details. The William Morris fabrics are the perfect complement for its style. Our room was the Pink and Rose - it was spacious and beautifully presented. The bed linen was, as promised,... More
