My sister and I stayed here for 2 nights following a major bereavement, so the circumstances were not auspicious.We were greeted by Lianne and invited to sit by a lovely wood burning stove and given tea in delicate china (an important touch).
Our twin room was delightful.Spotless, stylish with good quality bed linen (Laura Ashley), excellent duvets and tea/coffee -making facilities (china crockery) and with fresh milk provided and hand made chocolates from a local provider.Toiletries were organic and the bathroom large and immaculate.
The organic theme continued with an exceptional breakfast.Freshly made bread, plain or sour dough, choice of plain or smoked local bacon, hens 'or ducks ' eggs, locally sourced sausages , mushroom and tomatoes.Lots else besides, as on the second day we had almond croissants.
The whole house was tasteful , welcoming and comfortable and my sister commented that it was like being with a friend who was cherishing you (and this, at this time in particular, was very much appreciated). Lianne is a superlative hostess:considerate, interested in people and sensitive.We found flowers in our room when coming back from a meal on the first night.This is beyond customer care!
So impressed were we by this place that my niece and her partner decided to join us for one night after hearing the description.
The pub 8 minutes away was perfectly adequate for a quick meal and there are good restaurants in Edwinstowe.
I am a fussy traveller, always research thoroughly before staying anywhere and expect high standards: this place exceeded my expectations.Even our luggage was carried to the car.Thank you Lianne's partner!
A B and B of this standard deserves to thrive .Thank you both.
