We stayed here for 2 nights over the August bank holiday weekend.
We found Carolione to be warm and welcoming and we were made to feel weclome and relaxed in her lovely home.
The house is beautiful and we were were really happy with our room. It had bags of character and was tastefully decorated, very clean and the bed was the comfiest ever!!
The communal lounge area and kitchen are an excellent facility if you want to be able to prepare picnics/lunches to take out with you for the day. We especially liked being able to get fresh milk from the communal fridge to use in our tea/coffee.
We were welcomed with freshly baked flapjack.
Breakfast was served in a delightful dining room. It was very good with fruit and cereal and a good choice of cooked items along with home made bread and preserves.
We spent both our evenings in the Barley Mow, a lively village pub with decent pub grub. When we were here over the bank holiday they had a beer & cider festival on along with live bands. Over the course of the weekend my husband just about managed to work his way through the list of ales! We also had lunch one of the days in the tea rooms in the village, this was very pleasant too.
Bonsall is a lovely village, very quiet, but not too far from some of the more popular attractions in the region.
We enjoyed some very nice walks straight from the door of the B&B.
There are some lovely extra touches here (along with an excelent host) that turn this from being just a good B&B to an excellent one.
I would not hesitate to recommend a stay here.
Thank you Caroline for a lovely stay.
