I came across The White House on the internet and spoke directly with Carol and booked the whole B&B for ourselves and our friends. What a good decision that was because we had... More

Stayed for two nights at the Whitehouse over August bank holiday! Carol and Rob are lovely friendly people who will look after you without exception! I would not hesitate to return, in fact, I hope to in the future. Lovely room, A1 home cooked food and amazing people. Stay there, you won't regret it! 👍

Carol and her husband Rob were delightful and made us feel very 'at home'. Tea and homemade cake on arrival coupled with a warm welcome set the tone for our stay. Freshly cooked breakfasts with the best... More

Only stayed for one night, unfortunately, as we were going to a family wedding. Wish we could have stayed longer. Excellent facilities, spotless and modern and the finishing touches made it. We were welcomed by Carol and Rob with a pot of tea and home made cake! Breakfast was lovely and kept us going all day (a very long one!).... More
