We were very comfortable here, very warmly welcomed and very well fed. Because I have a back problem, we had to have a twin room, which is not one of the refurbed but it was clean and comfortable and I slept very well. The lady of the house is a real live wire and works hard to create a hospitable atmosphere. The man of the house is the chef, equally pleasant and welcoming. The food was exceptionally good, fresh produce, very well presented. Asparagus in season, chargrilled, then a perfect grilled ribeye steak with a hint of five spice. My husband's starter of smoked trout was beautiful and the duck was excellent. Vegetables were outstanding. We shared a stunning rhubarb and ginger oaty crumble with custard, again a zingy hint of allspice was as delicious as it was surprising. Breakfast was fabulous with fruit juice and a bowl of chopped seasonal fruit on the table. I chose the kipper and it was plump, juicy and delicious. Once filleted, there was not one bone to be seen. Jam and marmalade is made by chef. This couple work hard in this big old house which has great potential and which they are gradually refurbishing. We wish them well.
