Its a lovely house with big garden, large communal room and breakfast room full of interesting books and local guides and maps. Breakfast is amazing, fab fruit salad and top... More

Whilst house-hunting in the area we stayed with Kate and Nathan in their beautiful Old Mill. Everything you could possibly need. Despite being in tranquil countryside it is within walking distance of a restaurant, has an honesty bar, beautiful gardens and a delicious breakfast. Charming and helpful hosts with great local knowledge.

Although the guest house was located a few minutes drive from a petrol station, the surroundings were absolutely serene and tranquil. Kate and Nathan have done a great job in making the house comfortable and welcoming for all their guests. Our room was quite large and warm and cosy. Their garden looked particularly lovely, even though I did not have... More
