There is a saying "Perfection is a bore". In the case of this wonderful place it is certainly not true, for a more perfect place I have yet to stay in. Linda and Tim make sure that every one has everything they need from food (superb) to advice on where to go and what to do. The bedrooms, all different,... More

This is a lovely B&B in a beautiful area. The rooms are in the farmhouse which is very nice and the gardens and the view is wonderful.

I've just returned from a six night stay at the cottage. Linda & Tim have created a warm, welcoming and relaxed atmosphere there, something that you can't put a price on. It's literally them welcoming you into their home. Clean, comfortable rooms, breakfast and supper are splendid, not only on quality but also in quantity - and I do like... More

Hosts Linda & Tim very helpful and friendly. Brilliant breakfast. I was there to play in the England Seniors Golf Championship and Linda provided very early breakfast when required for an early tee time. The location and house are beautiful ... some great villages, pubs and restaurants near by. Linda also provided tea and scones for us each afternoon :)

We are so glad you had a nice stay and although your result meant you didn't get that extra night with us hopefully, you will return and visit some of the other 5 or 6 good golf courses locally. Bring some pals and have a golfing weekend! More

As with other guests I was welcomed warmly by Linda and Tim. The room I had was clean, tidy and very well equipped with a great shower. One drawback (or advantage) is the mobile signal is very poor but wifi excellent. I was presented with a very full plate of bacon, eggs, sausage, tomato, mushrooms and potatoes. It set me... More

Our 2nd time at Horseshoe Cottage, this time with family (teenager's in tow). We all thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay. Linda and Tim looked after us all as usual and it felt like a home from home. Fantastic, traditional country living in an amazing location. Tasty breakfast and clean rooms. We look forward to our next visit/stay. Jason/Helen.

This barn conversion oozes character, second only to the exceptionally warm welcome by Linda and Tim. On arrival I enjoyed fresh coffee and flapjack which was very much appreciated.

It can be very lonely staying away from home for work, especially at the weekend and we try to lessen this by extending a warm welcome to all our guests.
