Don't stay here if you seek conformity, This is definitely not a standard B&B and for that reason we loved it. To have a sitting room separate from the (wonderful) owner is a real plus when it rains. You can come and go as you please. In addition we were directed to a part of the garden which was for the exclusive use of guests. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfasts delicious. After a day or two of the full English with home-made jams, we were offered smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. All delicious. Chocolate biscuits in a tin alongside the tea and coffee in our room and the fresh flowers were so welcoming as was the peace offered by the relative remoteness of the ancient Manor. (Neither of us are in the first flush and we had no trouble with the steps up to the bedroom.) A great stay.
