Having never stayed in a B & B before, we really didn't know what to expect. Are there any 'Rules' I asked Jenny ie do we have to vacate the house after breakfast and not return until the evening?!! She laughed and told me, no, there were no rules as the guests have their own sittingroom and you can sit there all day if you like! Well, it was like staying in a small hotel. Nick the host was so hospitable, discretely on hand with any local information or help that we needed. The grounds are stunning with the most beautiful peaceful 10 acre arboretum for enjoying which you must do if you stay there and the house, itself, just lovely! A stay in the summer with good weather to enable the use of the swimming pool and tennis court would be lovely. This has opened our eyes to B & B'ing but, will this have set the bar too high. A challenge which we now feel we must address!
