My wife and I stayed for a two night break. The lady owner was very helpful and friendly, our room was a good size and comfortable. However the property is not no smoking and had we known this we would have chosen elsewhere, i can handle the Dog but not the smoke sorry.

I study at a local college and first stayed in Nutshell Cottage in September 2012 and was made to feel so welcome by both Carole and her lovely Afghan Hounds I have returned every month since to spend between 3 and 5 nights there. Carole has always greeted me with a warm welcome, enquiring into how uni and general life...

Whilst working in the UK for the past 4 months, the Nutshell has been the restful sanctuary to which we return from stints "on the road". Carole provides you with lovely, clean, comfortable rooms, a great shower and a fantastic choice of breakfasts - the excellent pancakes being my favourite. After only one night you begin to feel like one...

I just spent 4 nights at Nutshell on a business trip. I can't fault it - excellent breakfast, with tasty local produce, very comfortable clean and restful rooms, tea and coffee in the room, friendly advice on the region, where to eat, etc, combined with a professional attitude to service. I would definitely go back, but with my own transport...

I am writing in response to two reviews from a-h-h-t in Lancashire and Claire from Merseyside because I feel they are unjustified. I regularly stay at Nutshell Cottage and would not consider anywhere else. a-h-h-t says it is unwelcoming with no tea or coffee in rooms but she doesn't mention that you can use the kitchen facilities. She also mentions...

I visit the UK most summers on a working holiday, and Nutshell Cottage has become my European home a way from home. Why is this? As well as meeting all the standards expected of an excellent B&B (clean comfortable quiet room, comfortable bed, good breakfast, secure car park, welcoming host, facility to make a tea or coffee, etc) Nutshell has...

I have stayed at Nutshell Cottage on a number of occasions due to significant business travel. I run and operate my own business with my husband where we both have to travel the UK on an almost weekly basis. I rarely find the time or have the inclination to write a review about a hotel, B&B or restaurant but having...

Stayed here for the night whilst attending a function at the pub just up the road. First time I have ever stayed in a B&B, as travel with my work during the week who use 3 and 4 star hotels, so wasn't sure what to expect. Arrived late afternoon to a very warm welcome and plenty of fresh coffee. Very...

Thank you for another wonderful stay. This is the third time we've stayed at Nutshell Cottage and we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. We use Nutshell as our base when we come to visit family in the area and before we commit to dates / times of visits, we check Nutshell's availability first. The cottage is beautifully decorated with...

“Nutshell Cottage has a room with a private bathroom, but the lovely bathroom is very close to the rooms - I am more than happy in any of the rooms. All the rooms are very quiet and comfortable.”
