This was the perfect stay, after a long day! When I booked the owners had let me know that they were having a wee shindig, but that I was more than welcome to book for the night, and so I did! I arrived in true good timing, right around the time they were about to serve their dinner... they showed me what amazing hosts they were by... offering me a glass of wine! I settled in quietly, and was immediately calmed by the view overlooking the river and an amazingly stunning orange sherbet sunset. My room was cozy and serene with a nice reading chair, a very comfortable bed and a cute little electric fireplace to aid the tranquil atmosphere. Breakfast was SUPERB and I was delighted with a yoghurt parfait, fresh toast and marmalade and an asparagus, cheese omlette with salsa on the side - Yes, quit drooling and book already! Sipping coffee and chatting with Jim and Sheila was a great way to start the day (-: Sheila was lovely enough to send me on my way with a side of banana bread - which, I was very thankful for a few hours after I left in the morning. White Horse has all you can ask for in a B&B, friendly, clean and a warm, unique atmosphere. If I am in the area again, I will cross my fingers that there is a room for me here (-:
* For those travelling with pets, Jim and Sheila allowed me to stay with my dog, which I was so grateful for!
