2nd visit to High Tor and we are not disappointed. Still spotlessly clean, rooms nicely appointed with comfortable beds. Hosts couldn't be more helpful and friendly. Great breakfast to set you up for the day. No lunch required????? Look forward to my next visit.

What a superb b&b. From the minute you walk through the door Sue & Gary take good care of you. Spotlessly clean, brilliant breakfast & good location. Our room was beautifully decorated and had everything you needed including wine glasses and a corkscrew - perfect! Can't wait to return.

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a lovely time. We arrived on a Friday night and as other reviews have said, parking isn't the easiest. However, the owners are so good at giving information on where you can/can't park, they also give you a permit so that you can park without paying. We stayed in room 2 which...
