Old Parsonage House is a stunning building in itself, but the owners have made it into an incredibly pleasing B&B. It's hard to know what to mention first really, so I'll start at the beginning where we had to email to ask if it was okay to check in later than specified on the website, and received a very prompt reply which was very accommodating. We booked the last available room and I am so glad we did manage to book it.
The building is gorgeous, from the heavy wooden front door to the windows, some small circular windows and some - including the window in our room - huge and offering amazing views of the area.
We were shown to our room (Room 1) by the owner, Tim, and I did a double take as we walked in as the room was much bigger than I expected, beautifully decorated and as mentioned above the window was enormous. Just in front of the window was a table and two chairs, which we definitely enjoyed using during our stay.
I have to mention the bathroom as well; the shower is unlike anything I have seen at a B&B or even most hotels, there was a beauitful rainfall effect shower set in the ceiling and then a lower "normal" style showerhead in the same walk-in cubicle. It seemed like a real luxury, and a decent shower definitely makes a difference to my stay.
The breakfast was absolutely delightful with fresh fruit salads, yoghurt, home made plum compote which was delicious, and mini pastries and cereals as well as cooked breakfast on offer. Throughout the whole stay I noticed lots of nice finishing touches and also was pleased to see the food was locally sourced and all of the refreshments in the room were fair trade.
Old Parsonage House is a wonderful place to stay and we will definitely be back.
