Quite extraordinary. A luxury hotel on a small, personal scale. Small as in there are only four rooms, but the rooms are large, comfortable and beautiful. Personal as in the owners and staff are not rushed off their feet but are friendly and engaging without being intrusive. The rooms feel very private because of their size and the fact that... More

Simply cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. The ambience, attention to detail and location are all second to none. Our second stay here. What a wonderful place. Great breakfast... love the haddock and poached eggs! Super comfortable bed. Beautiful decor. Friendly, welcoming and very helpful hosts. This hotel is very special.

We enjoyed staying at this hotel. Liz gave us a warm welcome and brought us tea and shortbread in the drawing room which is very cosy with a fireplace and has elegant light fittings. The hotel is beautifully decorated throughout with warm colours. Our bedroom was spacious with a little hallway and walk-in shower. Tea and coffee was provided in... More

We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. We do have a sample menu on the website but as I change the menu daily, using whatever is best and in season it is difficult to quote prices when cost is often dictated by market price. We source as much of our produce as we can from our local... More

Just before Christmas my family (2 adults, 2 children) stayed in the family room at The White House. What a lovely little hotel.

This was our second visit and it was just as good. Great food, brilliant and friendly service and a delightful room for a family. Traffic troubles mean we were late arriving and the team were very accommodating. We wouldn't hesitate to go back!
