We have known Sarah and Mark for over twenty years, as they both had successful careers in demanding jobs outside the Bed and Breakfast business. They have always been very hospitable in organising social events at their home, and when they suddenly announced in August 2011 that they were taking over The Bay Trees we felt that it would be an ideal new venture for them, as they thoroughly enjoy making people feel at ease. We stayed last week, accompanied by our mother/mother-in-law, who was provided with an ideal downstairs room. The guest house has been lovingly modernised, with very tastefully-decorated rooms and furniture and pictures etc carefully acquired to blend in with the house and its setting. The breakfast room is the conservatory which looks out towards a tranquil and delightful garden including five hens who produce the eggs which are served at breakfast. All food is sourced locally, and the village has several excellent pubs and restaurants; we particularly liked the Smuggler's Arms. There are many excellent individual and thoughtful touches, including home-made biscuits and a sherry decanter in the bedrooms, individually-produced breakfasts, cooked to guests' requirements on the Aga, and leaflets and umbrellas to borrow, to enable the maximum use to be made of the local area, regardless of the weather. Mark and Sarah's new puppy, a mischievous golden spaniel, joined the household a few weeks ago, and he is very welcoming and entertaining. Their loyal cat celebrated her sixteenth birthday during our stay. We would recommend trying to book well in advance; we stayed from Monday to Friday, as it was clear that the establishment is likely to be very popular for weekend stays.
