We just got back from a 2 night stay at this B&B with the wife, our newborn and our dog.
We arrived late on Friday night after travelling down from London. We were welcomed at the door by Sally who was helpful in getting a speedy check in so we can get settled and in from the cold. I was taken up to the room and shown where everything was, how everything worked etc.
We stayed in the Four Poster room and it was well presented, very clean and had a nice little settee area to relax. The bed was ultra comfortable and the room had everything we needed to ensure we enjoyed our stay.
Breakfast was very good. There was lots of choice and Sally was always attentitive, making sure we had everything we needed. On one occassion the wife had to pop out to feed our baby and when the food came out, Sally kindly took it back in to keep warm. The wife enjoyed her nice breakfast when she was ready.
We enjoyed the local area, walking around the castle grounds. The dog loved it too.
For dinner we went to the Horse and Groom. A dog friendly pub recommended by Sally. We had a great meal. Food was very good, a good mix between nice pub food and also restaurant quality food. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. As we're the locals. I would recommend this place to anyone in the area.
Overall a very pleasant first trip with the baby. Looking forward to going back to both Cleavers Lyng and the Horse and Groom soon.
