We stayed here July 2013 for one night. We had been unable to access accommodation in York.
What we liked: Room was an excellent size and the grounds were lovely. Breakfast was freshly cooked. Room was clean.
What we didn't like: Some have already commented on the lack of conviviality as far back as 2010; nothing has changed. We were told that some guests wanted an 07.00hrs breakfast so the latest we could have breakfast was 08.00hrs (even though the literature in the room said 08.00hrs 09.00hrs); this was due to the fact that the owner had 7 rooms to clean the following day!!!
Bathroom was poor. Shower had been in situ that long that the plastic had discoloured. Complimentary bathroom essentials were basic. Tea and coffee making adequate.
This appears to be a business persons haunt, not somewhere for a well earned break.
Overall view: This could be a fantastic bed and breakfast, but needs so much attention that it is difficult to see this moving forward (note the absence of any reply to the average,poor and terrible reviews from the owners). Neither owner seems that motivated. Sadly, this is decidedly ordinary.
