The owners clearly take pride in the level of service they offer - which is excellent. They take the trouble to get to know you and take care of small details... More

Caroline and John were excellent hosts, nothing was too much trouble, breakfasts were superb, rooms perfect altogether 1st class. Ideally situated with a short walk from the town centre, also ideal for connecting roads to the beautiful surrounding countryside.

Didn't have time to sit in the garden but it looked a restful spot, well kept and inviting. The room was well furnished and the bed large and comfortable.... More

The building and grounds were super, and the location ideal. The bedroom was immaculately clean, and had all modern amenities. Breakfast room, settings etc. were, as with everything here, exceptionally good, - as was the breakfast menu and the service.
