We recently celebrated a mini honeymoon after our wedding in this beautiful guesthouse. It is immaculate, very clean, fantastic breakfasts, and the nicest owners you will meet. Some places are worth every penny, and this is one of them. Thank you for organising Champagne and flowers and for your wedding gift. We cannot wait to come back soon!

Second time this year and once again excellent in every way. Sue and Gary really care about their guests, this is reflected in the high standards that they keep to. Ideally situated for the Town centre. Thank you both, we will be back.

Thank you so much Sue and Gary for another lovely stay! As always the room was beautiful, tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean, very spacious and with a really comfy bed! The breakfast was delicious and provided lots of choice, it really set you up for the day. Our stay was just perfect. Once again thank you very much.

Based in Germany and obsessed with all things British, my husband and I usually visit Northern England at least every two years.

We have stayed here a number of times and not once have we been dissapointed. People we have recommended to stay at the guesthouse feel the same. The decor is impeccable, it's spotless, a rarity if you ask me. The owners Sue and Gary are warm and welcoming. The room we stayed in is stunning, the huge bed comfortable. Plenty... More
