We had theatre tickets for Hilary Mantel's excellent double bill of plays at the Swan Theatre at the end of January, and as our usual guest house did not open until March, they gave us a recommendation to stay at Sequoia House. Our hosts were very helpful as to the time of day that we could arrive as we were due to see a matinee on the first day of our two night stay. As we were the first guests to arrive we had an opportunity to see all the rooms and were able to choose the wooden sled bed room preferred by my husband. This room has a shower, whereas I believe that there are baths available in some of the other rooms, so if that is an issue for you, it might be wise to enquire when booking. Our hosts were originally hoteliers and pay attention to detail and know what guests like to find in their b & b accommodation, and take care to provide it. There is now provision of tea and coffee facilties on a communal landing but be warned that there is a steep flight of carpeted stairs to be negotiated to make use of it. We enjoyed two very pleasant breakfasts in the charming dining room. The secure parking at the rear of the house is an excellent facility but beware the Google Earth image that showed the wrong parking site belonging to a nearby establishment.
