My wife and I have just returned from a glorious stay at this wonderful B&B. Set in Picture postcard surroundings, Jan & Rick are the warmest hosts at this quintessentially English country escape.
We headed down for a friends wedding but this wonderfully cosy B&B turned our stay into a really relaxing mini break. Everything is catered for, from the vast selection of Teas and Coffees with locally sourced snacks a real treat. The rooms are intimately and thoughtfully decorated, whether you fancy a read of one of the many vintage paperbacks scattered around or a soak in the deep roll top bath, The Fontmell Village Shop whisks you into a green and pleasant paradise!
I haven't even begun to talk about the breakfast. Jan provides the most glorious spread of fresh pastries, jams, cereals, fruits and yoghurts before treating you to the main event: The Cooked Breakfast. The Full English was certainly true to its name, filling indeed and with all the ingredients from the surrounding area you can taste the many English delights; from the fresh tomatoes to bright yellow eggs and sausages so plump they could burst. All washed down with fresh orange juice and lovely china mugs of coffee.
The Tea-shop has a 1940s feel which accentuates the rural aspect of the place with details and charm by the bucket load. Jan & Rick went far beyond the call of duty in making sure we had everything we needed; far surpassing our expectations and making the entire experience a true pleasure with personal touches throughout.
We went for a wedding but we'll be going back again soon with the thinnest of excuses. Good Job and see you soon!
