We booked three rooms as we were in town for one night only as part of a bit of a worky road trip. The rooms were lovely with lovely newly fitted carpets and happy beds. Kathy was incredibly welcoming and helpful and breakfast was a joy too. We will surely come back for another stay next time we’re around.

Very comfortable stay - room very well presented. Extremely well looked after and whole experience was excellent value for money. Super breakfast. Much appreciated the local knowledge of the hostess who went above and beyond to make sure everything was fabulous.

We arrived and we were the only couple staying. It was quite eerie. Lovely beautiful house. Lovely breakfast. Very trusting of the owners to have left us alone whilst they were away until the housekeeper arrived in the morning to make breakfast. Would think twice about the town. Would stay at the house. Very comfortable and also very clean and...

Thank you for your review. We work hard to maintain our high standards of cleanliness, service and quality of food. I am pleased you found the house so quiet you were not aware of the presence of other people in the house. There were actually three other guests staying so perhaps you just didn't meet them, as sometimes guests arrive...
