The Studio offers something a bit different from your standard B & B. It has the best of both worlds - a place to relax on the comfortable sofa, somewhere to make hot drinks or even eat a picnic and yet breakfast is delivered every morning, so no washing up! We had glorious sunny weather, so enjoyed the little garden... More

We have been visiting this B&B since 2010, and every time we come, it surpasses our expectations. Cathie strikes the perfect balance between being warm, friendly and helpful, and giving you your privacy. We particularly like that this B&B is separate from the main house, so we can come and go as we please. There are numerous little touches that... More

Completely separate from the main house, with private entrance and its own pretty garden with table and chairs. The Studio is light and spacious, with a double and single bed, as well as a large comfortable sofa, Flat screen TV, DVD and CD player and free WiFi. There is a good local pub serving food just five minutes' walk away and a small fridge is provided with fresh milk and space to pop your picnic or a bottle of wine. The en suite facilities include a full length bath to soak away aching muscles after a good day out as well as a power shower.
