I had to buy an item urgently from a store 3 miles away and Jane offered to drive me there, wait until I buy... More

Our stay at The Daylesford exceeded all expectations. Jane & Martin are excellent hosts, so welcoming, treating guests as individuals, giving their time and are very friendly. Even offering homemade cakes with drinks on arrival. They think of everything and make sure all the 'little things' are perfect. The breakfasts are second to none, the choice is extensive covering all... More

Arrived early and we could check in immediately, with a nice view of the cricket pitch. Our room was spotlessly clean and Martin and Jane treated us as individuals rather than just a room number. The breakfast was superb, Try the home made yoghurt gorgeous. We will definetely stop again.
