Unfortunately just a 1 night stay to break up our journey, but John and Beth made it so worthwhile. Two very homely and caring people with every intention of making you the most important person around. Beth was trying out her home baking when we arrived, so it was straight into the garden to enjoy the fruits of her labour, just as if you were visiting friends. The house was along a short driveway and situated in a huge garden with a marvellous variety of flowers, shrubs and trees. it is only about a 15 minute walk to local restaurants, and only about 20 min drive to Christchurch. The room we were in, The Torlesse room, was very large, with walk in storage area, very large bath and seperate shower areas, really spacious. The bed was also very comfortable. The full breakfast in the morning was extremely tasty and plentiful. Beth even supplied us with some fruit loaf for our journey, she was so generous.
This was very good value for money, and would definitely recommend it.
