Bev and Neil are perfect people to own a B&B. They have a great sense of humour, it was certainly on our wavelength. The location is a little remote but with Bev's notes and your satnav, it is easily found. The surroundings are quiet with nice views and off road parking. The bedrooms have been tastefully renovated with ensuite facilities...

Our welcome by Neil set the tone for our 3 night wedding anniversary break. A cream tea with absolutely fresh scones was a great introduction. Neil's cooking was a joy to eat, and Bev's skills ensured that mealtime was a real pleasure. Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. We even had a larger than standard shower cubicle in...

When we arrived Neil offered us a pot of tea or coffee. The accommodation was 1st class and the en-suite shower spotless. Cleanliness throught the B&B couldnot be faulted. Neil cooked us a superb 3 course, ably served by Laura. Neil's wife unfortunately was in hospital and we were unable to meet her. Despite this Neil kept admirable standards. Cannot...

We had a fantastic few days in Sampson Barton Guest House, where we felt very much at home with excellent hosts, Bev & Neil, who make a great team. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was lovingly prepared by Bev, and the food was out of this world, beautifully cooked and presented by Neil. We thoroughly recommend a visit...

Very good accommodation. Very warm and friendly welcome from two great hosts. Food was very good, especially breakfast. Super location out in the wilds - bit hairy in the ice when we arrived but otherwise fine!
