My wife and I have travelled extensively and we can honestly say that with our first visit here this past weekend, we fell in love with this B&B. I am almost reluctant to rave to much about it because when people start to read how good this place really is and how giving the hosts really are, we may not be able to get back in. That said, Susan and Glen have clearly put a lot of thought into this warm and welcoming B&B. The accommodations are top rate and very well appointed. We stayed in the Garden room and really had a great view out over the water. The breakfasts were superb ( eggs benedict- "supreme" and muffins " par excellence". We even came home with a new painting of Susan's that we fell in love with and bought. We found Susan and Glen to be very hospitable and excellent with their recommendations for places to visit and places to eat. All in all, it was a great get " Away".

Room Tip: Go for the Gardener's room if you can get it. Come prepared to go hiking in the Sandbanks as it is so close.

Away is a work of art. Hosts Susan and Glen, who themselves did the extensive renovations that made Away what it is, enthusiastically describe it as a "labour of love". Their care and attention shows in every detail but, importantly, the place reflects their strong senses of style and solid aesthetic. The place is beautiful.

We were fortunate enough to be treated to a full tour on our arrival so can say that every room is lovely. Away is a warm blend of wood, cream and concreate - set off by enormous windows throughout. The building is located up some distance from the shore of East Lake and set on an agle that affords spectacular views over the lake and adjoining properties.

Susan and Glen were themselves warm, welcoming and extremely helpful with advice on what to do and see in the County. Their love of the County is infectious!

I couldn't recommend Away any more highly.

Room Tip: All the rooms are charming. We stayed in the Gardener's Room - which had the largest windows and most panormic of the views but would have been happy in any of the rooms.

Away in the County is a very special way to experience the region. In a lovely peaceful setting overlooking a lake, this a a perfect place to relax or to get on bikes and tour the county. The hosts Susan and Glen are very knowledgable, have lots of great tips to help with your touring around the county. Most importantly the rooms are beautiful, impeccable clean, comfortable beds, thoughtful amenities and Glen serves a delicious breakfast featuring lots of local delicacies. The bonus is Susan's studio: she is an accomplished encaustic painter (google it) and if time allows you may get a demo! We will stay here again.

This is an amazing new B&B . The rooms are very clean and comfortable and Susan and Glen make you feel like you're at home. The rooms are tastefully decorated and overlook the gardens and the lake. The food is excellent and the owners were very considerate and kind with respect to my dietary needs. The hospitality and kindness exceeded our expectations by far. We will no doubt return.

Thank you for the great review. We look forward to hosting you again in the Spring and thank you for your repeat booking. Thank you for contacting me and advising me that you had meant to rate sleep quality as excellent and had difficulty changing it after you posted. I appreciate you bringing this to my attention.
