My friend and I, garden, animal and countryside lovers, fell in love with this place as soon as we arrived down a long narrow country lane and found a delightful cottage garden and stream surrounding a lovely cottage. We had a room each, and the addition of fresh flowers, home baked cake and fruit in each of our rooms were touches which made us realise we were somewhere special. The rooms are traditionally but charmingly furnished, and the small but classy touches continued with the discovery of individual percolators to make fresh coffee. The annex which houses the rooms has its own entrance, and a hallway with lots of books, information, and a selection of the products which are for sale, made by our hosts.
And our hosts Elizabeth and David were delightful people. We had lovely long chats about gardens, flowers and animals. We met their sheep, chickens, geese, bees, baby ducks, dog, cats, and of course the badgers!
I would recommend this place to anyone and we can't wait to go back, although sadly family commitments make it unlikely in the immediate future.
