My sister and I wanted a get away from the hum-drum of life and just relax, and we could not have chosen a better place.
In all honesty, we have been in two minds about writing this review....because really we wanted to keep this hush-hush, and not share. Yes, it's that good!
Natalie and Guy, our hosts, were more than just welcoming. They truly took the B&B experience to another level. From the moment we booked, the welcoming emails and detailed information with directions are no doubt signs of good inn-keepers, but the pots of tea (of choice, and Natalie has a good selection) with homemade strawberry crumble cake, were a lovely touch.
The room was immaculate, and incredibly comfortable, with plenty of guides of bath and the surrounding areas, dvds and books...just incase one left their light reading at home.
There was nothing that had not been thought of, including a very well equipped kitchenette with some lovely surprises.
Once we had refreshed with tea, Guy gave us a lift into town, again a wonderful touch.
As is seemingly obviously, there is nothing more one could ask for! Superb. We will be visiting again soon!
