Our stay at Haydon Street was great from the word go - starting with a lovely welcoming email from John and Keren after we booked. They were very friendly hosts, helpful in every way. They have an afternoon wine tasting for guests, and in our case that was substituted by attending a concert at the town plaza, where John and Keren had reserved places for guests.
The house is just beautiful, really a home to stay in, with great features and facilities and walking distance from town. There is a lovely sitting room and living area. Our room (the Garden room) was really quite small and a bit difficult with two big suitcases, but it was very well appointed and decorated, with lots of extra touches. The bed was super comfortable. There was a great shower making excellent use of a small space and quality fittings throughout.
Breakfast was fairly formal, well presented food and very enjoyable. Definitely the sort of place in which we would like to have stayed longer and hope to return.
