We spent a birthday celebration on a Thursday night here recently, and were so pleased that we chose this inn. Being peopprietors of our own bed and breakfast, we have high standards, and they were definitely met! Not only is the inn a peaceful retreat from bustling everyday life, but it is beautifully decorated in an upscale shabby chic decor, with whimsical touches everywhere. The owners were delightful, helpful, and couldn't be nicer. We loved our room, number three, decorated in blue and yellow, with an upstairs balcony, offering a view of the nicely landscaped grounds. The bathroom was large and absolutely spotless! Do not miss their adorable bar "Detention," the cutest little bar possible! We had cocktails there prior to dinner, and a brandy there after dinner.
Dinner was spectacular! The chic dining room, decorated in a sophisticated palette of white, taupe, and black, with twinkling lights, was absolutely stunning, and the epitome of romantic dining. Dinner was really delicious, featuring local oysters and rockfish. The piece de resistance was the divine sticky toffee pudding, the best we have ever eaten, even in England! Warm, rich, perfect!
We can't rave enough about how much we enjoyed our stay!
