“Unbeatable from every angle”
Reviewed 24 March 2012

This is undoubtedly the best B&B that have had the pleasure to stay at. I agree with everything in the previous review but must add that the host and hostess are charming and interesting people. From the beautiful house there is a short but steep walk to the top of the Wolds from where there is a majestic view of Lincolnshire. We saw Ciff-chaffs, woodpeckers, kestrels, tree creepers, mistle thrushes plus all the usual garden birds.
The breakfast is superb and I strongly recommend the dried fruit compot.
A magical 3 days in a truely rural and beautiful part of Britain.

Reviewed 22 April 2009

Excellent location in the village, five minutes by foot to the wooded western scarp slope of the Wolds, officially designated an Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Perfect for walkers or those who appreciate beautiful countryside. Pretty garden, with daffodils and tulips dominating at the time of year (April) that we visited. Very clean and comfortable accommodation. Comfortable beds, and we slept well. Excellent breakfasts, with the hosts also giving us some of their own specialities as "an extra touch" -- home-made quince jam and a home-made fresh-fruit salad during one breakfast, and rhubarb with dates during the next. Friendly hosts who evidently enjoy accommodating their guests. At my request (because I suffer from serious overheating when I sleep under a douvet) they gladly provided blankets for my bed, and a douvet for my wife's bed. Overall, well deserving their official rating of 4 diamonds by the English Tourist Board, and unreservedly recommended by me
