Exceptional detail and perfect for staying if traveling through for business or staying for pleasure. Stayed on numerous occasions and could never fault a thing. The personal touches in the rooms, bathrooms and feast they provide for breakfast is never short of fantastic.

This is our nth time going to Clarens and staying at Patcham Place. If you want quality and a great time away from the ratrace, this is the place and the B&B. Hosts Carol and Richard are just the best.
