We arrived at Crosshill House about five hours later than planned due to an incident on our journey. Despite this we were welcomed very warmly by Roberta shown our room and pointed in the direction to the food at the Dovecote Inn. The Dovecote staff were very helpful and although late and kitchen closed we were given food that enabled us to survive the night!
Crosshill House more than lived up to our expectations in that our room was well positioned, the bed very comfortable and the bathroom with shower was small but serviceable. The breakfast was great, lots of choice, full in flavour, quality and freshly cooked. Breakfast was a social event, not threatening in any way but an opportunity to meet the other guests.
The B&B is just across the road from the aforementioned Dovecote Inn. It is pleasing that there are two such welcoming establishments within close proximity in the very quiet, village of Laxton.
We chose to book three nights at Crosshill House because it seemed a very pleasant place to stay as shown on the website, it is also central to the area we wanted to visit. Very handy for Clumber Park for a full day out with lots interest and long walks. It was a very pleasant experience and one we hope to repeat.
The food and service at the Dovecote Inn is first class but one needs to book to ensure a table. Roberta was good enough to do this for us when we booked with her.
