Can't praise this place enough. The owners Fiona and Justin made us feel like part of the family. Room, views and food wonderful. Only stayed a couple of days, but will certainly go back, hopefully for a longer visit next time as hotel is very close to many attractions. Thanks again foe your wonderful service Tim & Daphne

Stayed with Fiona and Justin a few times now and cannot recommend their guest highly enough. Both times we've stayed their service has been above excellent letting us treat it as if it was our own. Can't wait to go back and stay, and Seb can't wait to bring Polly parrot back down to stay. Thanks for having us… Again.... More

On arrival the loveliest of people Fiona and Justin met us with a warm greeting and a friendly smile, we immediately felt we were at home! We had a double room with a lovely en-suite, it is the cleanest bathroom I have ever used! The house is surrounded by beautiful country side and not far from lots of tourist spots.... More

We booked last minute and were very pleased with our choice. Justin and Fiona are a lovely couple who welcomed us in and from the moment if our arrival nothing was too much trouble.I asked for peppermint tea at breakfast then when we got in that night they were in the tray in our room. Lovely accommodation spotlessly clean and... More

I have stayed here on several occasions..so perhaps that says something. The accommodation is either in the main house on in the cottage which is a converted garage. My choice is and was the cottage providing space and comfort. The main house rooms as you'd expect are smaller but comfortable non the less. The owners are friendly and will accommodate... More

Stayed here for work locally. Owners were lovely. Rooms were perfect with new shower suite and large tv. The area is gorgeous. Local pub within a couple hundred metres. Would highly recommend! Thank you Poppy . Kevin

The location in countryside is enchanting and peaceful, but difficult to find out if you don't have a satellite navigator. Our room (No. 7) was at the ground floor and did not have a good view, but it was nice and clean. The bathroom was new and spacious, but the room was really too small for an extra-bed (we were...

The room was immaculately clean; the bed was extremely comfortable; the service was excellent. Even though it is advertised as a b&b, evening meals are available at a very reasonable price, and are of excellent quality. The next time I am in the area, it will be my first choice to stay.

My wife and I stayed here for one night at the beginning of August and had a very comfortable time. Our room (Room no.1) was quite small but it had every conceivable facility - large wide screen TV, a powerful shower, comfortable bed and even a small mini refrigerator. We had dinner at the guest house, too. I can still... More

We booked two single rooms, one on the ground floor was like a broom cupboard, no natural air in rooms, could not open windows. Breakfast very disappointing owners clearly trying to skimp, little choice. Would not recommend, poor value for money. How do these B&B get their accreditation,i would award no more than three diamonds.
