We were given a list of places to stay in Red Hill for a friend's wedding. Orchard B&B looked good on the web and Helen's prompt responses to my emails were helpful and friendly. We spent two nights in this beautiful spot tucked away at the end of a long road. Our bed was as comfortable as promised and the Egyptian sheets were divine. The room was clean and warm and the balcony has a great view - a really peaceful spot to sit and read the paper or a book. The little touches were great, including Frank's friendly welcome, the Italian chocolates, home-made biscuits, range of bathroom products....and the fact that our kind host switched on the electric blanket to ensure I had a cosy sleep. But the best part of our stay were the breakfasts. All of the products appear to have been sourced locally and were the best of the best. We enjoyed delicious raspberries, lots of fresh fruit, smoothies, thick creamy yoghurt, eggs cooked just right, and fantastic cafe lattes served in glasses imported from the US. The breakfasts were memorable. We're planning to return in winter for more of those breakfasts!
