we've stayed at the grey horse 4 or 5 times over the last 2 yrs. each time has been great. we are not high maintenance people but certainly have reasonably high expectations. in terms of value for the area they can't be beat. so worth it. we really have no complaints.
having stayed in many b&b's over the years (some much pricier) the grey horse really stands out. clean, well-kept rooms. great breakfast (someone else posted about the scones. wow, deelish). welcoming vibe. perfect location for our needs. i hate cliche descriptions but this place is truly charming, as are the proprietors. knowledgeable, friendly, professional, attentive without being intrusive. good people and i'm glad to give them my business. they earn your loyalty. we've had to arrive in the wee hours of the morning and been accommodated without a problem - not even a grumble (try getting that anywhere these days). the grounds are lovely and if you have a room with a balcony overlooking the garden, it's very relaxing. some rooms don't have a tv, which is nice. the town is an easy walk with nice restaurants, so have that second glass of wine! don't forget to get a complimentary fresh-baked cookie (or 2) before bed.
