What more could you ask for!

A place out in the wilds with a beautiful garden! A large room with everything you need. Owners great!

Breakfast great!

Best of all listening to the owls at night!

As I said BLISS!

We have just returned home, having spent three very enjoyable nights at Nightingales. On our arrival we were made to feel most welcome by Jim and Gail, who are friendly and open and have a lovely sense of humour. Our room and bed was extremely comfortable, the standard of cleanliness excellent and the accommodation generally, was well maintained. There was a wide choice for breakfast, to include several vegetarian options - most unusual. The food was cooked well and presented in a pleasing manner. Jim and Gail were helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The area generally is beautiful, with some wonderful scenery, walks and places to visit. There are also some very good pubs/restaurants in close proximity, that serve very good evening meals. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and intend to return sometime in the near future.

We would highly recommend .

Room Tip: We stayed in Swallow room which was the largest room.-- no noise at all.
