Wonderful rooms, recommend the balcony room if available overlooking the lovely gardens. Great breakfast with a choice of quality ingredients. Unexpected gem in a superb setting, the only traffic noise was from a horse out for morning exercise. Would definitely stay here again.

We were surprised when we arrived to be asked to pay for the room the minute we entered the front door - normally guests pay when they leave and are fully satisfied with a stay. The price was £130 and this was well over the stated price on the internet £80 to £110 and that quoted on the phone -... More

Hello Daniel I am to be honest a little confused by your review. When you book the price is clearly stated and it is shown on the form that you sign when you arrive. I would be out of business years ago if I charged more when you arrived! If you where not happy why did you not say anything... More

A group of 8 stayed here (it could take a few more) for an annual re-union weekend, which worked out very well. Location, house, garden are all good with plenty of car parking space. Breakfasts are excellent and relaxed. Rooms more than adequate. Unusually, we were not disturbed by noise from other rooms. Owners are friendly, helpful and full of... More

This was a last minute booking and we had a wonderful stay. Owner couldn't have been kinder and nothing was too much trouble. Beautiful house and location. Would definitely stay again and recommend it to friends. Wish we could have stayed longer. Dog friendly.

Sally gave us a warm welcome and upgraded our room for us, no extra charge. A very welcome surprise. The breakfast room was warm and welcoming and the cooked breakfast menu was a delight. I tried a different cooked breakfast every day and was not disappointed. Our rooms were comfortable and the views of the marshes and the countryside were... More

We much enjoyed our two-night stay in this charming house set in a lovely garden. We had chosen the Sunny Room and it lived up to its name with windows overlooking the gardens and fantastic views. The room wasn't large but it had some very nice touches with biscuits and a chocolate on the beverage tray, a large bottle of... More

We stayed in the French Room. Not massive but big enough, and very well appointed and provisioned. Very comfortable bed. The house has plenty of spaces for visitors to relax outside of their rooms - by the inglenook fireplace downstairs with a selection of books; on the large landing with a card table and a selection of games; and probably...

Had a lovely long weekend stay. Comfortable bed and excellent breakfast. The shower was rather small but served its purpose. Highly recommended. One word of warning do not trust sat navigation to get you here. Print off the instructions from the website and enjoy.
