A lovely place with large rooms and even larger loos with old fashioned claw footed baths. We stayed in the annexe which gave us a feeling it was our own home, especially with the complimentary port and sherry. Sadly it rained throughout our visit so we didn't enjoy the very inviting garden and wrap around verandah.
The hosts are charming..we loved our chat with them about cricket and rugby and they very kindly shared their excellent cricket library with us. Not many might know that this little town is where many of the rules governing one day cricket emerged.
The B&B is located round the corner from world class restaurants..try Reuben"s which was our favourite.
The view of the monument at the end of town withthe hills ringing it is specatcular!
