Found this great place by accident. One of the best mistakes we've ever made. Love the owners, food and premises. You will not be disappointed. They even taught me how to make porridge. And I make it the same way every night since

I really liked this B & B which we stumbled on by accident. Very warm friendly greeting and hosts were very helpful with recommendations for food and places to visit. Would highly recommend. Lots of places to visit around the area and slightly further afield.

Hello Helen I am sorry not to have spotted your question earlier. The Spinney does not take pets. We do have our own but she is kept to our part of the house. Honey would not rest with another dog in the house and we are... More
