I had trepidation's about the bed, which would normally have been too hard for me, but surprisingly I found it OK. Unfortunately somewhat constrained by what can be done due to the heritage of the building, and the road outside is very busy, necessitating earplugs on a...

A wonderful experience from Karen's warm welcome when I arrived to the friendly farewells. I was going to be back late in the evening and Karen offered to leave out a small flask of fresh milk so I could make myself a decent tea before retiring; so thoughtful, and typical of the way I was treated all the while I...

What a lovely place to stay! We were warmly welcomed and nothing was too much trouble. Lovely clean room, spacious and tastefully decorated. The bathroom was top notch and the bed was lovely and comfortable. The scrambled eggs for breakfast were the best I've ever had!

It was a really lovely experience. We were so well looked after and attention to detail in everything. I hope to be able to stay there next year for Silverstone weekend. Parking was easy, just across the road. Our room was at the back with a view of the lovely garden, quiet!

This place is special. I could simply leave the review at that, but it is just one of those places that when you stay here you will wish you owned it. You can just feel the character in every part of the building. The room was lovely, decor sympathetic to the era of the building and so inviting. This place...
