We were attending a wedding at nearby Gaynes Park and had an overnight stay here. The cottage itself is an old converted schoolhouse and is full of charm. The rooms are adjacent and are clean, comfortable, well appointed and tastefully decorated. The bed was the most comfortable I have slept in at a guest house!
Breakfast was plentiful and freshly cooked and the dining room, in the main house was charming. On a warm day it is also possible to take breakfast outside if you wish.
Car parking is sceure and within the grounds of the cottage, which lies behind security gates to which you are given access.
The patrons are friendly and extremely helpful and we had a lovely stay.
The only downside I can think of is that you can here a fair bit between the rooms so maybe not ideal for honeymooners!
