Just returned from a 2 night stay at The Spinney and I cannot recommend this guest house enough. We were greeted by Dave and Jo and were treated to excellant service, hospitality and food thoughout our stay. After our long drive we were shown to our twin room and we were then treated to a fresh pot of tea with buttered crumpets and homemade strawberry jam - not to be missed.
The attention to detail in our room was second to none, the towels and bedding were of top quality. Tea, coffee and hot chocolate with biscuits were also available with bottled water and mints.
The breakfast was amazing with a variety of homemade produce and nothing was too much trouble. I recommend the muffin with scrambled eggs and salmon and the porridge with raisins and shredded apple was wonderful. No need for lunch.
I would highly recommend The Spinney, great accommodation, great food, great hosts, great stay.
