We had The Old House chosen for us as we stayed here for just a night at the start of a four-day walking holiday on the (excellent and picturesque) Coleridge Way and we could not have had a more perfect start. Our welcome was warm and the rooms were wonderful, with the absolute highlight being the Coleridge Room - a colossal and beautiful double room (far larger than many 'family' rooms that we have stayed in). The house is lovely to look at and the garden is delightful. The selection of food at breakfast was the best that we had on our holiday and everything was well prepared. To call 'The Old House' a bed and breakfast is a bit like calling Buckingham Palace 'a nice house in London' - it is so much more that the phrase leads one to expect and we definitely plan to return.
