Absolutely delightful. Warm welcome, immaculate and comfortable room. Free WiFi (hotel chains please note!!). Excellent breakfast and friendly service - everything a Bed and breakfast should be. Some traffic noise from busy main road, but not too troublesome.

We loved our stay at Red Lion House. A very comfortable bed in a lovely room- immaculately kept and clean. We had a lovely cooked breakfast in the morning too (as well as a continental one!!) Joanna and Eric were very warm and friendly and made us feel at home. Thank you!

Stayed here recently when visiting a friend. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated with a spacious bathroom. The owner was very friendly and even took us into town as we were in a rush, rather than us ringing a taxi. The breakfast the next morning was very nice. Definitely will be back.

Had a lovely stay at this B&B whilst visiting the area for a wedding. The hosts were very accommodating, even giving us a lift to the wedding venue. Wonderful breakfast and friendly service. Thank you.

Breakfast was also great with a selection of cereals, toast... More
