We picked The Spinney without any background information, but what a wonderful surprise. Jo and David made us feel welcome from the moment we walked through the door, homemade cake and a pot of tea waiting in the conservatory. The rooms are thoughtfully decorated and the beds are so comfortable. You are very spoilt at breakfast with local farm produce and homemade bread and preserves, plus poached pears etc. It was lovely chatting to other guests over breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to guests who enjoy old fashioned courtesy and a guesthouse away from the main town centre.
