Only stayed one night but we were made to feel very welcome. The rooms are gorgeous with very comfy beds, you even get dressing gowns and slippers and a complimentary small bottle of wine. Absolutely superb and the breakfast is marvellous. Thoroughly recommended.

We stayed 3 nights at Brown's while househunting in the area. We couldn't have asked for a warmer welcome or a better place to stay. Calm, relaxing, homely and professional in everything. My dog was made welcome without a fuss. Rooms were clean, pleasant and relaxing places to be in. Thanks!

We stayed here for a week at the end of August/ early September. Without a car this may not have been the best choice at the top of a very steep hill, since we had to negotiate the "short cut to town" via steep steps and very steep slopes 4 times a day! It kept us fit if nothing else...

The accommodation is in a very large Victorian...

We stayed here whilst on a tour of England for a 4 day visit with our two young children aged 10 & 2, from the moment we entered the huge old house we were made to feel welcome, as if visiting family nothing was an issue. Breakfast was hearty and plentiful from fresh fruit to full English and cereal in-between!...
