We arrived tired and dishevelled, a party of 5 plus 2 dogs, having spent the previous six hours stuck in traffic jams - it was the first day of the school summer holidays. The gate shut behind us and we found ourselves in a wonderful, secure garden; cake and tea arrived and we immediately started to relax. The dogs were in heaven - a large, safe garden with nothing off-limits. It was as if we had arrived to stay with old friends; the house felt like home and we were confident that we could come and go as we pleased. Our two large dogs enjoyed the attention that both Jane and Paul so freely gave, and were happy to be looked after by them while we went to a wedding on the second of our 3 night visit. They especially enjoyed the breakfast titbits they were offered.
Meanwhile, the rest of us delighted in all that the other reviewers have highlighted - large comfortable beds, smoothies and gargantuan breakfasts, idyllic historic cottage with wisteria outside the bedroom windows - the list is endless. The most striking memory I have is the very genuine interest and attentive concern shown by Paul and Jane. Our stay was more like the best house party rather than the more usual B & B experience. We will definitely be back to enjoy the opportunity to explore this part of the country further, and to visit what is a very special place.
