The only "bread and breakfast" about this place is the price. The building itself is beautifully restored converted from a dilapidated barn. The food is good from the very friendly chef. All the staff were very welcoming and friendly. The surrounding landscaping is tranquil and beautiful. Perfect for a break away from the city.

We hired huey the vw campervan for our honeymoon. We brought him back a day early as the weather wasn't great and stayed in the pink hut. The pink hut is just as described in previous reviews and it certainly different! We loved it, especially the log burning fire! Our favourite part of the whole stay was the dinner which we had in the outbuildings... It was truly amazing and we will remember it forever! This is such a unique venue. Judith the owner has maintained the character of the barn and has furnished it with brilliant taste. We will definitely be back and would recommend to anyone who is a little bored of hotel rooms which all look the same!

Stayed in the Button's room for two nights. The room was lovely and spacious and well furnished and the bed was large and so comfortable. The little touches made a difference like tea tray with fresh cake daily, water and mints . Just a couple of points but not criticisms: The little fridge was a nice touch to keep the milk fresh but it was a little noisy at night time so we turned it off, a mirror near to an electric socket would have helped with hair drying and the TV in the corner was a bit small for the room. Moving onto food: must admit I was a little concerned that the dinner menu was set, but worry not, the food was delicious and beautifully prepared, even had food we had not eaten before like Hake and Guinea Fowl which were lovely. I did get the impression though that an alternative would had been provided if the menu had not suited, as Hilary the Chef was very nice and discussed the menu at breakfast time. Breakfast was eaten in the fabulous kitchen at a communal table and cooked to order, a novel idea which we didn't relish, however it was fine and I can understand the thinking behind it. Perhaps given the choice though some people might prefer to eat downstairs at seperate tables.

Overall this weekend was one to treasure, the peaceful location and accommodation were very special as was the cuisine and outstanding friendliness of the staff.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in the Pink Hut. Although very compact the hut was cozy with a full double bed, shower room and log burning fire.

The outbuildings are in a lovely location and are definitely worth a visit. The breakfast and evening meal was lovely. At breakfast the guests sit around a farm house table and eat together. This did not bother me but it might bother others.

I suggested a couple of slight improvements to the hut to Beth. They include a mirror in the main part of the hut where there is a bare wall. The only other mirror is in the bathroom. A bigger sink would be a real benefit but we did manage. There are no tea/coffee facilities in the hut but if you go to the main building someone will make you one at no extra cost.

All in all a very good experience.

I stayed at The Outbuildings for three nights, dinner bed and breakfast. They had put together a package that involved two days of bird watching.
I am not a bird watcher, my bird watching level is robins, blackbirds and in spring looking out for the first swallow.
What a super package.
The accommodation was of the highest level, warm (the weather was freezing) comfortable and homely. The food was very good quality, well cooked and we looked forward to our dinner each evening. I was not sure why we were served wonderful homemade bread each evening and shop bought bread for breakfast. The homemade bread was fabulous.
The bird watching was run by Nature Bites and I thoroughly recommend them, they were knowledgeable, professional and we had a very interesting time.
