A very pleasant stay. The cottage is full of character, nicely furnished and comfortable. We had sole use of the large bathroom upstairs. Towels and bathrobes were of a very good quality. Our hosts, Jacqueline & her husband, were very welcoming. Upon my request Jacqueline had made sure our full English breakfast was sourced from free range/organic produce. I would... More

Stayed at the Old Ale House recently. It is run by a charming couple for whom nothing was too much trouble. It is a lovely 500 year old house with exposed beams. My room was nice & comfortable and the breakfast they served up was excellent. Apparently, they have a number of regulars who keep coming come back. I will... More

I stayed at The Old Ale House last week. I'm working in the area for the next month and I'm completely new to the area. Very helpful friendly landlady (Jackie) - nothing is too much trouble. The house itself is 500 years old and is full of character and furnished sympathetically. Rooms are clean and cosy. The traditional tastey grilled... More

Totally charming lady runs the establishment and she kindly made me tea and toast as I arrived late, tired and soaked to the skin with no real desire to go out again that evening. The room was cosy and quaint and the whole house was spotless with antiques liberally on display... More

I have just returned home from staying in this lovely, characterful and charming B&B. I stayed with my husband and mother-in-law as we were going to a wedding very near by.

I travel very frequently and enjoy staying at B&Bs for their character and a simple nice stay. I called the Old Ale House Guest House over a month before my visit and was told that a single room was available and only £29.50 with bathroom and breakfast, but payment must be made in cash. I expressed how pleased I was... More
