Excellent B&B in a wonderfully quiet location, very close to the A420, A419 and M4 which makes life easy for moving around! Amazing breakfasts, made to order (!!) and Jackie is full of character. Thanks for a wonderful stay. Michael and Gemma

Jackie makes you feel welcome right away. She loves people and it shows. As another reviewer mentioned there is a great pub a stone's throw away. Jackie truly did cook the best English breakfast we had in the three weeks we toured England.

Visited here this week on business. What a fantastic experience it was from first to last. From the super initial greeting (if you've been, you'll know!) to the room, to the breakfast - everything was 5 star!!! Breakfast - freshly prepared was to die for! Will be back at every opportunity, if there is a bed available!!!

Exactly what you want from a B+B - a comfy bed and a cracking breakfast! A warm welcome on arrival and the hosts were very accommodating through out our weekend stay. We will certainly stay again in the near future.

A great B&B near to Swindon, great host, very friendly, excellent food. Very clean rooms, and also a very clean place to stay. Travelled up from Cornwall and it was very easy to find the location. We will be back again and would highly recommend this lovely B&B.
