This is the second time we have visited. Mark & Sarah are great hosts & make you feel very welcome. Food is delicious. Sherry in your room a nice touch. The only thing that could improve are the shower heads!

Stayed here for one night with friends, and were blown away! We were welcomed with tea and delicious cake and lavender shortbread, and shown to our exceedingly comfortable rooms. Fantastic attention to detail. Very comfortable bed, and huge bathroom with walk in shower and roll top bath. Breakfast was perfect. Thank you Mark, we loved it!

Hello Valerie. Thank you for your 'faultless' review, I am so pleased that you enjoyed your short stay with us last week. Sarah was distraught when she got back from a family visit that she did not get to meet you all and really hopes you will visit us again before too long. Best wishes Mark More

We really couldn't find fault with this fabulous Bed and Breakfast, from the very chic and elegant, not to mention, large bedrooms, to the hosts, Mark and Sarah, the lovely welcoming but very well behaved Jasper and George and the amazing breakfasts - mostly home reared and home made.
