This has to be my favourite B&B. The house is full of great artwork, the rooms spotless and well furnished, gardens perfect to relax in - and the breakfasts! Oh those breakfasts! Why can't all B&B's be like this!

Anyone wanting to know what the perfect B&B looks like should come and stay at Velwell House. Val and Gareth are friendly and relaxed, it's a bit like staying with really good friends. Food is very special, rooms are nicely furnished, and very clean. Everything worked well. We even experienced 3D TV for the first time!

“Every room is immaculate, just stunning. We wanted 3 in our room, so they put in an extra bed, we expected a camp bed as with so many other hotels, but we got a beautiful solid pine single bed. Just quality!”
  • On suite shower room - beautifully clean
