Stayed here for a night before we started the C2C. A lovely old house that is been very tastefully redecorated and renovated. Had a fantastic nights sleep in a massive bed the breakfast was excellent. The only down side is you can not get in till after 4pm other than that fantastic

My room (number 5) was lovely, crisp and clean with Laura Ashley wallpaper and high quality bedding. Everything that a person could require in this single room was there and it was twice the size of many single rooms in which I have stayed elsewhere. Kathy is a great host and made me feel very welcome. Breakfast was lovely with... More
