If you are looking for a restful, peaceful, calm, and welcoming rural retreat, you will be hard pushed to find anywhere finer than this. The setting is charming, the hosts warm and welcoming, and the accommodation is very comfortable, stylish; a genuine expression of the owners’ tastes, it abounds with thoughtful touches such as a selection of herbal, black and green teas, filter coffee, and an artistic eye is apparent in the details such as the decorative coat hooks, vintage pieces of furniture with ornate replacement knobs and suchlike. The vaulted ceiling and exposed beams only serve to add to the character. In fact it looks just as it does on the web-site, warm and inviting.
The breakfast itself is superb; the best breakfast I have had in England. Firstly, it is served in the room which is a treat enough in itself, but it is the quality of produce, and again, those thoughtful, artistic touches which make it special; vintage silverware, some of the ceramic items handmade by Leah herself, homemade jams, beautifully fresh fruits, eggs from their own chickens, and not to mention a whole stack of Leah’s homemade pancakes!
Unusually for me I cannot fault this place, and am already counting down the days until my next stay there!!
