Went away for our 15th wedding anniversary and what a fantastic find! Such a lovely welcome by the owner Nancy who made us feel right at home and couldn't do enough for us and the room or should i say cell(!) was just great and we won't hesitate to book again just for longer next time.

Went for a fun weekend away and wasn't disappointed with the B&B. Reception was a little hard to find but there was a warm welcome from Nancy and her dogs. After a coffee and a tea, there was a quick chat and we were shown the facilities. We stayed in the Queen Anne Boleyn room and had 2 pleasant nights sleep. Breakfast was nice and served in the Great Hall. We weren't sure why the rooms had the names they were given as the there was no information provided. On the whole a pleasant stay. Thanks Nancy.

I couldn't fault it. The hostess is incredibly friendly, obliging and helpful; and although curious how comfortable I would be in a jail (!), I had a quiet and peaceful sleep on the very-good-value-for-money prison cell.
One of the highlights, apart from the scrumptious (and sociable) english breakfast, was the family atmosphere, and the owners have two dogs and two cat to melt anyone's heart!

Room Tip: I have stayed here several years back but that time as a 'couple' and we booked the luxuriou...

We stayed 3 nights at The Old Court, we knew we would enjoy our stay from the moment we saw the place and were introduced to the our gorgeous and delightful host Nancy. We had the Judges Room with delightful views from the lounge of the old church next door, the hills from our bathroom window and our bedroom window overlooking the fishpond and waterfall in the courtyard below. We were gently woken each morning with a quiet knock on the door and presented with a beautiful smile from Nancy and a pot of fresh coffee, breakfast was beautifully presented in a lovely relaxed setting with Nancy playing the perfect host. We had a totally relaxing, enjoyable stay and we can promise that we will return again one day.

Room Tip: We viewed all rooms and they each have elements of fun or luxury attached to them depending on what...

Just a really down to earth, fun filled place with the warmest of welcomes and a "landlady" who couldn't do more for you. Very personalised service, very natural and just a lovely place to stay. I stayed on business and the free wi-fi was great, the recommendation for a nearby local pub was superb (as was the food and atmosphere there). Breakfast cooked to order. All amenities ie; television, tea and coffee making facilities. Just lovely.

Room Tip: Try the jail cell for even more fun!

Stayed 1 night here in September 2012 and had an all round enchanting experience. On our arrival we were greeted with an exceptionally warm welcome and freshly made coffee (which was very welcome after our long drive) .
With helpful advice and info about nearby places to eat ,drink and visit we explored the nearby area and found
The property is fantastic, Nancy showed us around , with our room, (Queen Ann jail cell) being very snug , but functionally and tastefully decorated to a very high standard. The bed was amazingly comfortable with somptuous bed linen making this 'jail cell' stay a truly luxury sentence.
Breakfast again was a delight with our every whim catered for

well where do I start, It's our second time to The Old Court with the family and on arrival we couldn't have asked for a nicer,warmer welcome by host Nancy,anything we needed was no problem at all, the room was fantastic, very clean and Nancy had even went out of her way and got us a playpen for our 12month old daughter Lola to play and sleep in, The pull out bed was just perfect for our 9yr old daughter Elise and the Jaccuzi bath was very refreshing after a day out checking the local area out !. We stayed for 4 nights and every moment was a pleasure for us all and when it came for time to go home none of us really wanted to leave (yet again!!) and we will deffinately be returning in the near future once again, fabulous breakfasts,beer,wine,champagne on request.. I can highly reccomend this room and the Old court to anyone who enjoys a down to earth,friendly environment with a wonderful host Nancy who will ensure your made to feel welcome every moment of your stay ***** Five Stars from us !!. Paul & Natalie Hegarty

Room Tip: Judges Master Suite is excellent for a small family & superb value too !
