I stayed here with my husband for two nights in August 2012. He booked it as a wonderful surprise after seeing it in an article in The Independant on the top 50 B & B's.
The house is an eclectic mix of farmhouse and stately home twist. This is a wonderful place, totally different to any other B&B we've stayed in. We booked to stay in the Castle room which in itself feels decedant and luxurious but when you combine it with the bathroom it is just amazing.
In a room as large as the bedroom itself stands a superb cast iron clawed bath. The white wooden floor is covered in sheepskin rugs, while the walls are adorned with lovely black and white wallpaper.
If you want quirky luxury then this is the place for you. The mornings started with a great fried breakfast. Everything was cooked to perfection, fresh and local.
Having stayed in many B & B's in the UK we have honestly never been anywhere as special as this. We are hoping to return at new year to enjoy the countryside in a different season.
