We needed a stopover on way to and from a family wedding in Leeds and chose this via Alastair Sawday's guide to B&Bs. Booked all but 1 room for a combination of generations, including 86-year old great grandma, newlywed couple, going-on 16 teenager and 5 year old skallywag! Very off-the-beaten-track location with extremely pretty and well-appointed rooms. A warm welcome to die for (including refreshing cup of tea and most delicious lemon drizzle cake) and the best choice of breakfast enjoyed in a kong time. It was a real shame that we could not enjoy the place as much as we would have liked, but we'll definitely be going back to relax and explore. Many thanks to Gilly and Simon for creating such a lovely haven and for taking the strain out of a potential stressful trip!
