We stayed at the willow cottage as we had an anniversary party nearby. We were greeted by the hostess Julie who made us very welcome and relaxed after our long journey. The room was bliss with beautiful crisp bedding, hot towels, towelling robes and a tray of hot drinks to make so that we felt at home. The cottage was very beautifully decorated and comfortable with a breakfast you would not want to miss. Julie was very attentive and nothing was too much trouble, with breakfast freshly cooked when you arrived in the dinning room. Everything was laid out perfectly with designer crockery and soft music playing in the back ground. The 5 star breakfast was beautifully cooked and the sausages were fab so to know her secret you will have to stay there to find out. Thanks for a memorable stay and would definitely recommend this B&B due to the personal touch that Julie gives.
