I have recently stayed at Ashburton house on several occassions and every time have felt really comfortable. I enjoy the individual nature of the place it is the exact opposite of all of those anonymous hotel chains. Uniquely presented and spotlessly clean it is a real gem.
Whilst there are only a few rooms it has a warm, quirky, friendly atmosphere.
Breakfast is fantastic, really nicely presented in the wooden panelled dining room and with as much choice as you can wish for.
Not the cheapest in the area, but probably the best value by far!
